After a long day of rehearsal on a blistering hot summer day, the only sight more refreshing than a cooler of ice-cold Gatorade might be that of a beautiful sunset. Outside away from the bright lights and loud noises of the bustling city, drum corps members have long had a front-row seat to these natural displays of beauty. Check out this great collection of photos representing some of the best tributes to "sky appreciation" that we've seen so far on the 2014 Drum Corps International Tour. While Mother Nature certainly has done her job to make these skies so beautiful, you've got to admit that it's the drum corps that make them look even better!
