A good day to fly!

Skys are particularly empty these days. Between the triple digit temps and $5 a gallon gas, not many people are boring holes in the sky.

But with a rare summertime double digit day, I took an afternoon with the little plane. It's been a while since we've flown and fortunately my partner left an air tank in the hangar, as the front tire was particularly flat. So flat it made it difficult to drag out of the hangar.

So here's a couple local sights. The top one is Weaver's Needle. And below is the fountain at Fountain Hills. At one time this was the highest fountain in the world. They still crank it up the first 15 minutes of every hour.
