Skydivers at Eloy, AZ

We felt like we needed to take a break from working on the house, so after lunch we headed to Eloy, AZ.  Our first stop was at the visitor center which is stocked with all kinds of good information, not only about the local area, but the rest of the state as well.  This is one of the better visitor centers at which we have stopped.  From there, we headed toward the Eloy Municipal Airport to see if we could see some skydiving.  There are a couple of them in this photo that just barely show up.


We saw numerous skydivers and watched for quite a long time.  It’s one spectator sport that is definitely a pain in the neck.



This building is set up for indoor skydiving.


Trucks pulling trailers with seating took the skydivers from the landing area to where they load the planes.


Then it was back to the house with a stop on the way at Baskin Robbins.  That was a nice cold treat on a hot day!
