This trip was shortly after the Shiprock flight. On this cruise I took off from my camp site about 25 miles northwest of the Coronado Arch. The goal was to meet a few other pilots that were going to take off from the parking lot of the Arch trail. We would then all fly through the arch. Well, it didn’t turn out that way. When I got to the arch, I saw the other pilots on the ground but the winds were crappy and they couldn’t launch. I tried to drop down but was not liking the rotor in the canyons. After a few minutes of waiting and watching I finally turned around for camp. The video below is of a cool little spot I stumbled upon on the way back. Was a nice evening for sure.
