Recently, our local “airport slugs” from Flagstaff, Wickenburg, Seligman, and Aguila, Arizona flew across the Grand Canyon to a backcountry airstrip perched on the North Rim, to enjoy good company, a home-made pancake breakfast, and a horseback ride. Talk about incredible!
READ MY APRIL FLYING CARPET COLUMN, “BAR 10 RANCH,“ about the adventure (Mobile version HERE) and SEE ADDITIONAL PHOTOS.
Interested in visiting Bar 10 Ranch? Light-plane pilots are welcome at the ranch’s Whitmore International Airport (1Z1), but research the strip and phone ahead for reservations before landing there.
