Man walks up Transmountain carrying American flag in honor of Independence Day

EL PASO, Texas (KVIA) — A man was seen walking up the Transmountain trek with an American flag Wednesday.

His mission: to spread awareness about Independence Day.

Henry Lopez was spotted by many cars driving on Transmountain earlier Wednesday. He says he started from Artcraft Road.

Lopez is a veteran, serving in Iraq and Korea.

Lopez told ABC-7 about the response he received from Transmountain drivers during his trek.

“Just people, I guess, honking and waving. Also proud to be an American, too. I’m assuming.”

Lopez tells ABC-7 he hopes to repeat the same walk again next year.
