Independence in Telluride

088

Old WWII plane giving a fantastic fly-by during the parade.  4 F-16’s came by shortly after that gave everyone goose-bumps.  Some tears.  ;)  Video of the F-16’s here (PS:  Wait for the 2nd plane): http://vimeo.com/13166034

Jason’s kid, Will, will require close supervision with my daughters in the future.  Cute picture, for now.

Airtime in T – 20 minutes…

I like this picture Jason took.  The riding is phenomenal.  There’s a new dnhill trail just built that has amazing features including a jump across a road.

Jason’s new I-phone4 took this picture.  The fireworks display and echo’s around the box canyon were mind-blowing.  A camera fell off the microwave back at the house from the percussive shocks.  Better than a concert.

All the kids got a kick out of seeing me land.  Maddie’s got a great expression here. 

Airtime: 2:10

 

PS, the weekend before at Lake Granby was worthy of mention… Our favorite Irish family, the O’Connell’s show’ d us a great time on the lake…

Juuuuuuust sit right back and you’ll hear a tale,

A tale of a grateful skip (per),

that started on this ‘party barge’,

yes we had more than a sip.

The Cap’n was mighty sailin man,

the barge a hearty make,

that outran a storm for an hour straight,

till we ran out of lake.

The Skipper Too

The wind picked up and pushed our barge,

It took three of our hats,

But then we heard the ker-plunk, plunk

and I think I might have shat.

The next day was awesome too, but sunny and a more traditional day on the lake.  As a pontoon boat aficionado once told me… "The skies are always clear on the nautical mile". 

Aye Aye.
