Nothing within walking distance Mark. Except the Museum. If you decide on over the border raid keep me informed.

Default Food

N56, 50 to the SW, claims to have a diner across the street. DSV has food across the street but no grass runway.

Default Hidden Splendor Airstrip, Utah

Hidden Splendor Airstrip is located about 15 nm northwest of Hanksville KHVE. Its location is in the ForeFlight database and any search engine could yield a lot of information. The elevation is nearly 5,000 feet and the runway is over 2 thousand feet long. Its also wider then RV9 wingspan.





The strip and surrounding canyon rocks are eye candies.











Runway oriented NW-SE. It's very hard to determine the wind. The only windsock is torn out. So a pass or two are recommended to figure out the wind.







Very nice hiking area.








You may want to walk the runway as well to remove larger rocks from your way on takeoff.





I was there in the middle of November and it looks like a perfect time. OAT 55F with light and variable winds. Plenty of runway for a fixed pitch O-320 powered RV.





Highly recommended. If unsure you can stop, firewall the throttle, follow the canyon either way until you get enough airspeed then climb out and try again. Or come next time...

Default Beautiful but.... gravel...

We’ll add this to airplane camping destinations, but I’m not too sure our pretty red prop cares for gravel. Let us know if you’re around Ajo sometime after mid-December.
