Friday Photo: sunrise at Monument Valley

The view: Sunrise in Monument Valley, Utah.

The pilot: Bruce Windom

The airplane: Vans RV-8

The mission: Bucket list destination

The memory: After four days of touring the canyons of the West, I was looking at nearly 10 hours of flying time to get home. I checked out of the hotel early and walked across the street to the airstrip, watching the horizon slowly brighten. At exactly sunrise, I took off and grabbed a couple of “secondary sunrises” of the big, red fireball cresting the mesa. Made it home just before sunset!
