Officer Doug Barney - It's Flag Day!!!

Northern Utahan's w ere saddened with the news of the shooting death of Officer Doug barney. It was senseless and savage and took the life of a special police officer. His televised funeral was just held in the 10,000 seat Maverik E-center and the procession is now leaving West Valley City, Utah and traveling a 60 mile street route that eventually ends at the cemetery located just about a mile from our home.  The local Boy Scout troops were asked to drape 1600 North in Utah from the freeway to the cemetery. Being a long time Scouter I was alerted to the request and this morning I took my camera along the Orem portion of the route just as the sun was rising. It was a special experience for me as I stopped at several locations looking for just the right views and 800 photos later I am back here at my computer. In about an hour and a half I get to return to be one of those lining the street as the procession passes by. For me it was a special morning as the sun came up over Cascade Peak.
