Last week end this is the view from our back door.
This week we went on a vacation. We flew into the Idaho backcountry. On one morning we flew into the town of McCall, ID for breakfast and to shop. At the pancake house this is the sweets displayed in the front display case. YUMMMMM….. oops calories.
First shot is hanging around the camp fire. Feeding the fire and telling stories. The second is a picture of a recovery of an airplane from an airstrip after an accident. The airstrip where it crashed had no road into it so the airplane had to be lifted by helicopter to an airstrip where there was a road. The plane is hanging around until it gets to the airfield where it will be taken apart and trucked for repair. No one was hurt in the accident. The aircraft had to be removed because it was in a wilderness area at the owner expense.
We had a teenager camp with us with her dad on the trip. She started drawing this funny face on a rock at the campfire. We all started laughing when someone ask if this was “WILSON”, the next day she bought a soccer ball which made it even funnier. Look at it upside down also is funny.
This is where we landed and camped (Johnson Creek, Idaho). There is still space for more aircraft. In the two weeks before we arrived there were over 100 aircraft camping on this strip each week. We make this trip at least once each year and LOVE the time. NO phone, Hot showers, WI-FI, great friends from all over the US. Cost for camping is donations only. It takes over 2 hours to drive to this location from the nearest town on rough gravel roads, we fly two hours from our home in Wyoming to get to this strip in Idaho.
More photos from our vacation
Other pictures taken on our afternoon walks from the airport. A falling down log building with new growth trees around it.
Don’t know the name of this flower but it sure made a great picture.
Again an evening walk off the end of the runway this old mining building as the sun was setting. Note all the flowers.
Our home away from home. All the comforts. Air conditioning, air mattress, short run to water.
