Pepper, May 2012

Pepper is a beautiful girl that has lived with my folks for a long time. She is of course much older now and has the unfortunate hip issues that the German Shepard breed has. She was still getting around rather well though during my last visit which is now over one year, no thanks to the virus. How deeply I miss my family.

Rain Sails from On High

Rain Sails are common over Las Vegas in the Monsoon Season. Small clusters of rain clouds pour their badly needed rain upon the valley floor far below as do the very large and angry storms. The rain sails, or shafts, always look beautiful to me as seen from the ground, in two of these photos, those sails are at about the same altitude as the aircraft. Lovely! I really miss the fun of flight, and of couse my family in Michigan.
