Pacific Time

Yesterday was likely the most challenging airports I've visited all in one day. We flew up from Scottsdale, AZ toward Prescott, just to see the view, and then east to Sonoma, AZ (I think that was the name, but suddenly I am blanking). Could be the most beautiful place I've ever seen. We flew below the rims of the most amazing red rock canyons I've ever imagined. Made the landing there, and headed north. Tuba City, AZ was the next stop. It got the award for most deserted place we've been so far. But that award was rescinded a couple hours later.

We made a stop at Page, AZ for fuel and lunch, then flew down into Marble Canyon. Wow. More later on that. Then we ran along the Utah Border and stopped at St. George, UT for more fuel. Then the most challenging part of the whole deal: the small deserted airstrips between there and Boulder City, NV, where we ended the day. More on that when I get the chance.

This morning, it is windy with a few small rain showers. Our plan is to run northwest to Death Valley, CA.

Are you taking any pictures? If they're digital maybe throw a few up on the blog.

Bring us up to date. If you pass through Winslow again, take the 1977 Reliant Wagon courtesy car on a tour of town including the Standing on the Corner monument.

adr- yes, we are taking some really nice pictures. about 600 of them so far. At the moment though, we dont have a way to get them off the digital camera, so they will have to stay there until we can get home, I think.

Larry- sounds like you are familiar with Winslow. Unfortunately, we didn't get to spend any real time there, since we needed to get to Scottsdale, AZ for dinner. I will have to put that on the list of things to do though, if weather forces us back to the south for the return trip.
