As you may recall, I compared this to summer camp. Camp is over. The Parents are on their way. I work as a “relief pilot” for our company. That means every two days I move to a different plane. With five planes, that means I work 10 days, and off 4…I’ve used the four days off to great advantage this summer. (Pictures later…maybe…)
The word is we’ll be sent home soon..either way, we’ve had some of our planes sent home, so I’m out of a job.
This is Sulphur Creek..the runway is on the right…gravel. Great food…but you can only get there by plane or pack mule/horse. Wood stove cooks and heats…
Sawtooth mountains…incredibly gorgeous
Crossed over the sawtooths, descending down into the plain…
Garden Valley from a higher point of view
One of my favorites…Johnson Creek…the runway is like a putting green…
Lots of folks are talking about how much they’re looking forward to the season’s end. I’m not. I’ve not had this much fun in any summer I can recall.
thanks for reading this summer…maybe some things to follow in the winter….
Here are some pictures of the summer…
