Riding high at the Ammon Days celebration

Ammon Mayor Dana Kirkham takes a ride on the Ammon Fire Department’s new ladder truck with 7-year-old Asher Nelson on Saturday at McCowin Park. The truck was on display as part of the city’s annual Ammon Days celebration. The city acquired the truck only a month ago. The ladder can extend up to 100 feet. For the free rides Saturday, the ladder was raised to 80 feet above the ground. Pat Sutphin / psutphin@postregister.com
