Early, early Sunday morning we received a phone call from a friend asking us to come fly with him.
Not being people who could turn down and invitation of such wonderful magnitude… we were off!
There (just above the wing tip), was Confluence Lake, in our small town of Delta, Colorado. You can also see the Gunnison River flowing toward Grand Junction, Colorado, and two large fields of sunflowers on the top of lower California Mesa.
We flew above the North Fork Delta County, and then he took us over Grand Mesa.
As time went on we traveled over the Book Cliffs (where wild horses roam) just above the city of Grand Junction, Colorado.
Then over the rugged and beautiful Uncompahgre Plateau (Un-come-pah-gray, with the accent on the pah)
The smoke from all the fires made the air a little hazy, but suddenly we were flying over our farm.
What a joy! What an amazing adventure and a delightful gift!
Sunday in the air!
