The weather was good Saturday morning, so we headed off in the Piper...
Durango was in the plan so we stopped in for a quick break, and decided to push on to the Grand Canyon.
About this time I was checking on the field information for the destination and noted we were below field elevation. I started climbing and pulled up into Pagosa.
Monday we hopped in the plane at 10 am off the ground about 10 after. The winds on Wolf Creek pass varied over the morning hours prior to our departure anywhere from 10kts to 17kts gusting up to 27. So we headed down over Cumbres pass, and home. Back in good time, we were talking to the Tower at noon.
We decided to skip skiing this afternoon so we could ride bikes out to lunch, clean the gutters and get ready for the work week. We both had a great time out!
