    No, not the campground but the landing strip.

    I'll admit...about two weeks ago, me & my buddy did fly over the Sandthrax campground on the way north from Lake Powell towards Happy Canyon and Dirty Devil.

    Some might remember, I was a Brit abroad during some enjoyable Canyoneering trips/Bogleyfests in Moab and North Wash back between 2009 and 2014, ish.

    I was just passing by, en route to Happy Canyon.

    But then we landed at Santhrax. My choice of name; this landing strip has probably never been used since the 1960s, despite it being a road. Right at the junction of 95 and 276

    For those in the know, a 65hp engine with no mixture control is a bit interesting at these density altitudes.

    All the best, and I remember Canyoneering with many of you; thanks for your tuition.
