For good measure, a hint of fall foliage back on that mountain too!
A timely image taken yesterday afternoon. I figured I had to share this today, the U.S. Navy’s 248th birthday. This old sailor is pretty excited that the Blue Angels opted to visit our fine state for the Grand Junction Air Show this weekend.
We arrived yesterday and were just checking into our hotel when I heard the familiar roar of afterburners. My wife and I raced out and headed over to the airport just in time to catch some of their practice. It was a way cool scene to see them with the snow-covered Book Cliffs in the background. Airshows here always benefit from the spectacular scenery but yesterday was certainly unique.
Happy birthday to the United States Navy and to all my shipmates! Non sibi sed patriae!
