… I took this shot before landing Sunday afternoon; the storms of late last week left a lot of snow on the peaks and I liked this last look before I entered the pattern to land back at Sedona. In the foreground going up to the rim is Long Canyon and you can see Seven Canyons Golf Course near center left; off image left is Enchantment Resort and on the right is Thunder Mountain. Moving across the horizon from left to right you have Kendrick Peak (also covered in snow), the San Francisco Peaks and Mt. Elden. Nothing remarkable going on in the photo and it is just one of those images that it is fun to gaze at Cloud Base was around 12,000’+ and those clouds were working but the winds were shredding the thermals too … so just a neat day and a nice remembrance.
A weekend of fun coming up and a weekend of remembering those who served and who made the ultimate sacrifice to preserve the incredible freedoms of this United States of America … when the din of politicians and charlatans is quieted we can reflect on what a really great people and nation we are … no people and no nation has done so much for so many as the people of this great country … check out the cemeteries all over the world where our brave soldiers have died in combat to preserve the freedoms we enjoy including the freedom to disagree … and the expenditures of our resources to help rebuild the countries of our then enemies.
Have wonderful Memorial Day weekend … take a few seconds to reflect on those who died so that you can enjoy those hotdogs and burgers … and your friends and families … Wow, are we ever blessed!!!
Whatever else you do or forbear;
Impose upon yourself the task of happiness;
And now and then abandon yourself
To the joy of laughter.
