Galena, Kan: This painting of the flag was on the side of a building in Galena, Kan. It is a reminder that our freedom in the US did not come free. Photo by Gary Warren/ladailypost.com

Happy Independence Day America! On this holiday weekend, I have chosen to make the Post From the Road a little different than normal. Instead of featuring a place, this week we will celebrate the birthday of our great nation.
At this time last year, we were on the road traveling across the northern states from Montana to Michigan. One of the subjects Marilyn and I both enjoy photographing is the United States flag and the various ways we see it displayed as we travel.
These images are a selection of flag photographs taken last July while traveling.
Editor’s note: Longtime Los Alamos photographer Gary Warren and his wife Marilyn are traveling around the country and he shares his photographs, which appear in the ‘Posts from the Road’ series published in the Sunday edition of the Los Alamos Daily Post.
