It was a very good day, and for the most part was spent flying and that always makes for a superb day. On one of the flights I came back from Roden Crater via the lake district SE of Flagstaff and got this shot of patterns in some relatively thin ice on Lower Lake Mary. I have no idea what caused the patterns to appear, but tend to discount human acts as the ice doesn't look thick enough to support any weight. It was a beautiful day to be up there; we saw climbers on top of Thunder Mountain in Sedona, but none on the San Francisco Peaks. Snow Bowl looked to have had some skiing on the upper trails.
Apologies for not more clearly identifying the shot last night. That was Q, our cat from whom the light streamed through the clouds; wondered why there were so many people gawking at the sunset from the observation area on Airport mesa, but now know why. J
Early night as another long one coming up tomorrow; truly fun to share the sky with four new friends today and Red Rock State Park was the beneficiary ... rides I donated to an auction for the park. Best part was meeting some wonderful people who were the high bidders for the rides and they are really appreciated.
Enjoy the day and pass a smile along to someone who needs it.
Until we meet again, may your path be lined with
leaves of gold. From our hearts to yours.
