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, 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.
