The view: North Pass, San Juan Mountains, Colorado
The pilot: Dan Littmann
The airplane: 1978 Cessna R182 Skylane RG
The mission: Montrose, Colorado (MTJ) to Pawhuska, Oklahoma (H76)
The memory: The day before this flight, the stations along the Continental Divide had been reporting 1/4 mile visibility and 200-foot ceilings with high winds and snow. Not very good conditions for an unpressurized, normally-aspirated piston single! I had several nice conversations with similarly-stranded pilots in the FBO lounge, then decided to extend my stay by one more day. It’s better to arrive alive.
