Freedom Rock Trip 06

Monday, November 20th - 9 days after Veterans Day, I went on a one day trip to central Iowa
 to view the 2006 Freedom Rock, and the finished Greenfield Iowa's Sesquicentennial Murals
 painted by Ray (Bubba) Sorensen II with a midmorning stop in Elk Horn for authentic Danish Rolls.

 owner, Jacqui Christiansen, is in far right photo.

Every year since 1999, for Memorial Day, Ray (Bubba) Sorensen II paints a new "wrap around" mural on the Freedom Rock
to honor the Veterans.  He paints the rock white a few weeks earlier to prepare it for the next mural.  2006 version below.
