It looks as if you landed downhill. Hopefully the Rams are friendly..

Went to a friend's farm the other evening.
Short airfield. One way in and one way out. 4000 ft and 30 degrees Celsius.

When the flying group was most active, we tended to want to see things up close. That is, unless things seemed a little more tense. These three videos are from the group flight heyday, the first has two short segments of the former style - Flying the Humbolt river down stream from the Rye Patch Dam near Winnemucca, Nevada and flying the Snake River at it passes up through Hell's Canyon in Idaho with a landing at Doug Bar.

One of the tributaries of the Snake River is the Owyhee River. It is strikingly beautiful in part of its course as it has carved a deep canyon reminiscent of the Grand Canyon, but in a much smaller scale and without the vibrant colors. The Owyhee crosses three states, Nevada, SE Oregon and Idaho

This video was taken during a trip to Oshkosh in 2004. The first segment shows a weather condition we encountered while flying toward Kalispell, Montana - Note our altitude. The second segment is over the Missouri River in South Dakota. Both segments were adrenaline boosters for the respective pilots.

Great footage. I especially like that Owyhee gorge. That would be fun.

Great footage Lowell.

Is that Rye Patch dam burst?
If so, when did it happen and what was the impact down stream?

I see a large amount of silt too. I suppose any dam in those arid parts will have that kind of build up?

@ KF Fan: That picture is on my taxi-way. The Rams are Dohne Merino Breed for wool and secondary use is fat lamb production. The breed was developed locally in Stutterheim from German Merino and Merino breeds. Those rams are in repose. They do their thing in June for lambing in November.

Kind regards
Reid

Thanks for the reply. We had a small farm some years ago. I always thought Merino sheep would have been a good fit.

I liked those, Lowell.... just great. The length of each one was just right also!

Thanks, John. I think all in the future will be short clips as the first big ones were originally published as DVDs for the participants in the old days.

Sinclair Inlet, the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard with some used aircraft carriers and dead nuclear submarines, and Mt. Rainier of course in the background. It's pretty nice flying.
