… the entire Northern Arizona area is inundated with smoke from fires out of state, the sky was pretty much overcast when I took off this morning  and the broadcast from Flagstaff ATIS (Air Traffic Information Service) on 125.8, was visibility greater than 5 and 5 which meets/exceed VFR flight. Kept the strobes and navigation lights on as it was very smokey/hazy and as a friend of mine is wont to say, it is good to be seen. The goal this morning was to shoot Red Mountain (volcano) as Bob wanted some shots of it for the article we are doing on the San Francisco Volcanic Field. Usually I don’t fly that direction much and when I do I am usually above 12,000’ as I head to the Grand Canyon or wherever since I am restricted to 14,500’ or higher in the GC area. Red Mountain is about 30 miles NW of Flagstaff and about a mile to the W of Hwy 180. There is signage on the road and from the parking lot about a half hour walk to get into the amphitheater area of the mountain … a volcanic cinder cone.

Forty-five years after Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour filmed “Live at Pompeii” in the legendary Roman Amphitheatre there, he returned for two spectacular shows, part of his year-long tour in support of his No.1 album “Rattle That Lock”. The performances were the first-ever rock concerts for an audience in the stone Roman Amphitheatre, and — for two nights only — the 2,600 strong crowd stood exactly where gladiators would have fought in the first century AD.
