Looking straight ahead while gliding
By Ted Grussing
Didn't know... what I wanted to send out tonight so I asked our granddaughter Annika what she thought I should send out tonight ... she didn't have a clue either. So while scrolling through images I shot last week I found a couple of shots that I took looking straight ahead while gliding ( a sled ride) back to Sedona after taking photos of the smoke plume from the fire on Mingus. What a contrast; clean air ahead because they were not burning in the Coconino Forest and behind me thousands of square miles of dense smoke inundating an area where tens of thousands of humans live and they had no choice in the matter.
So, straight ahead of me going from right to left about mid-image is the Village of Oak Creek and Pine Valley, Castle Rock, Courthouse and Lee Mountain, Cathedral Rock, airport, Thunder Mountain, Long Canyon and on the left horizon you have Mt. Elden and I think center horizon is Mormon Mountain (8500'). Anyhow it was nice and with a head wind it was comforting to know that the smoke would stay behind me and I was thankful they were not burning in the Coconino Forest which is what lay ahead of me.
Cork and I had a nice and somewhat quiet weekend. After church today, it was down to the ponds and then home for a quiet afternoon watching football. Not quite used to sitting around that long, but it seemed like a good thing to do and there is always tomorrow to do the things I should have done today. Another respite break coming up this week and thinking of just getting in the plane and flying somewhere ... dunno yet.
Hope your weekend was good too and we're into the new week ... make it a good one starting with today. Easier to anticipate a good day than a lousy one ... and smile
And in this journey over a thousand hills and valleys called life, he is wisest who
is patient where the way is hard, has faith when he does not understand, and carries
into the dark places the light of a cheerful heart.
