The airstrip at Sedona is on top of a Mesa.<quoted text>
Giz, you are right, that hot air baloon ride was very similar to your ride in a biplane. I stopped at a little airstrip in Bealton Virginia at a Sunday show called the Flying Circus and took a trip in an open cockpit plane and it was a ride to remember for a lifetime. Oh, when you were at Sedona did the Pink Jeep rides exist where you could go with a very nice female guide and she would take you on a trip in on the backroads and go off roading in the jeep? About the only thing that hit me was that I stayed in the Hilton in Sedona and went to the resturant the first morning and on the menu it stated two eggs cooked any way, what I did not take time to read was that these two eggs cost $12.00. I placed that little bit of information in my little known and seldom used folder in my head and learned to always read the price list on the right side of the before placing an order.
Fairly long enough runway for modest sized planes, but with a too high and too hot approach and you're over the side and down about 500 feet! I managed to survive landings with our airplane which is a trike, but the tail dragger like a Waco can be a bit twitchy, especially in crosswinds. It was a really memorable flight.
We stayed at a nice motel and resort which sits on the same Mesa as the airport, and we could easily walk to the airport and it's famous restaurant.
And really, the restaurant there has the best growlies in town, according to the locals, and we fully agree. It was indeed, very good.
Didn't take the jeep ride like you. We had a rental car and did a lot of exploring around the area though.
It's beautiful country for sure. After leaving Sedona, we drove right down to Yuma to visit some snowbird friends. we went the scenic route through the mountains and down into the desert. Nice!!
Good assessment of Mr. Wonderful!!
