I was starting to miss summer already so I was going through my photos and came across some from this year's Maple Valley 4th of July Celebration. One picture is the announcement of this year's Pie Baking Contest winners, :) and the other shows the fireworks show set over Lake Wilderness. In my humble novice photographer opinion, they truly capture the wonderful small town feel of Maple Valley. Maple Valley is a constantly evolving and bustling community with the new addition of Maple Valley Townsquare that opened this summer, however this town still manages to keep that close knit community feeling alive. I love calling Maple Valley home.
