Went to the Sun N Fun Fly In in Lakeland this weekend. The Thunderbirds performed and were great as always. They had to do a low level routine because of low ceilings, but it was awesome. I was especially impressed with the C-17. It took off in about 400 feet and landed in about the same amount of space. After it landed it went backwards for about 50 feet. When it got to the end of the runway, it backed into its parking space - incredible! It was a little rainy, so got some interesting pics with the rain and clouds off the wings and propellers, as you can see here.

On the way to the Grand Canyon, we visited Montezuma's Castle and Well. Both we pretty neat to see. After eating lunch at the 101 Omelet restaurant, we explored Sedona. The red rocks are amazingly beautiful. We drove north to Flagstaff and reached 7000 ft. Lots of snow from about 5000 feet and up still in the trees and places the sun doesn't hit for long. (If anyone wants to help identify the little gray bird below, please try, we're not sure).
