In November 2009, I went on a backcountry flying / camping trip into the Canyonlands of southern Utah with my flying buddies Paul (Aeros2) and Mike (Rans S-18). I (Jeff) was flying my trusty Aerotrike Cobra. We landed at several strips during the day, then headed for our camping spot on a bench overlooking the Dirty Devil River. This was the most remote spot I have ever landed at. No road access, just foot, horseback and now ultralight. The airstrip was created during a uranuim mining boom in the 1950's and 60's.
It was late in the day when we arrived, the sun already below the horizon. The winds were perfectly still, and all three of us glided in to a easy landing. The next morning we headed out again to Happy Canyon, Angel Point, Hidden Splendor and camped at Mexican Mountain.
