Gothic Arch Challenge - Tickets

I was thinking about trips with my family as a child when I created this arch. My parents always believed in exploring our "neighbourhood" which in this case meant the province in which we lived. Mom would somehow find out about a town with an interesting museum or a place to pick apples or blueberries when they were in season. I am very appreciative for all of their efforts now that I am an adult and often set forth myself for a day trip to see a field of lavender or to travel to an area farm to sit outside for lunch surrounded by a garden of herbs. The world is filled with beauty and you don't need to travel far to find it. This is my entry for the Gothic Arch challenge this week.
