    The last two images were taken at a place called Mormon Battalion Christmas Camp. I had not heard of this little facet of Arizona history before, but it is fascinating. According to Wikipedia,

    The Mormon Battalion, the only religion-based unit in United States military history, served from July 1846 – July 1847 during the Mexican–American War of 1846–1848. The battalion was a volunteer unit of between 534 and 559 Latter-day Saint men, led by Mormon company officers commanded by regular U.S. Army officers. During its service, the battalion made a grueling march of nearly 2,000 miles from Council Bluffs, Iowa, to San Diego, California.

    The battalion’s march and service supported the eventual cession of much of the American Southwest from Mexico to the United States, especially the Gadsden Purchase of 1853 of southern Arizona and New Mexico. The march also opened a southern wagon route to California. Veterans of the battalion played significant roles in America's westward expansion in California, Utah, Arizona and other parts of the West.
    The Battalion picked up a guide along the way in New Mexico. His name was Jean-Baptiste Charbonneau, who as an infant traveled with his mother Sacajawea to the Pacific with Lewis & Clark in 1805-06.

    The Christmas Camp is where the Battalion spent the Christmas of 1846. It's now a popular, if remote, campground and hiking area. Getting there by land is arduous, and tough on a vehicle's suspension.

    We went flying today. While our plans for a $ 100 burger didn’t work out (again) :mad:, it was a nice flight. Quite bumpy but still nice... - lot‘s of frozen lakes in Michigan.

    I wish I had a crew like that to help with pre-flight. I wouldn't have to duck and crawl around so much. :biggrin:

    What kind of crop are they trying to harvest there? Seems like an expensive way to do it

    I like how you can see how the wings wobbled back and forth in the field. A little surprised that one didn't catch and spin it.

    I didn’t realize you were based at M02. I flew up there from 1A0 about a year ago. Very friendly people there - even offered to let me join their BBQ.

    Heading to universal tomorrow. I'll be sure to get a shot of Jimmy Buffet's Albatross.

    Decent tailwind...saw 175 ground speed for the first couple hours. 6 hours Hobbs with 1 fuel stop. Tiring, but WAYYYY better than driving 16hrs.

    Awesome! How's the performance of the Dakota when compared to the Archer? Similar handling characteristics?
