Photo Hunt - Steps....

I flashed back to a trip I made and memories of a visit with someone who was a friend but our steps we've taken in life now have us far apart in more than distance. As I had the chance to walk up the steps of the Church in this ghost town in California, I could not help think of the past, and what those early settlers went thru to build and survive during those times. At times we take for granted what we have now and we forget the many steps our forefathers took to get us to where we are now...
