Weekly Photo Challenge: Summer


One of the best ways to welcome summer is watching the air show at Hill Air Force Base from my home over the Memorial Day weekend. Although the air show doesn’t happen every Memorial Day weekend, it just so happened to work out that way this year.

Camping, hiking, swimming and sometimes skiing are other great ways of welcoming the summer season here in Utah, but the poor weather this year made many of those other tasks unlikely.

I will admit that actually going to Hill Air Force Base to watch the show from the grand stands is the best way to enjoy the show. But hours of getting on and off base made it unlikely this year. Luckily, our home is located close enough to the base to watch the planes flying overhead as they line up for their next flyby.

Check out some of the other photos I shot of the show on my Facebook page.
