Watch out for those cholla cactus, they'll actually chase you down.

Incredibly beautiful daughter you have.

Brings back memories from when my daughter was young and we used to go flying in my old Cherokee 140. Precious moments well spent!

Best regards,
Mike Bauer
Mike,
You seem way more experienced itís snow than me! Much less sharing the experience with the kiddos.

Steve,
Affirm on the above. Iím still trying to savor the extreme positives weíve been experiencing with her health while tucking the future unknowns into the shadows. Weíll deal with it if and when.
Pie is defenitely more of a passenger than co-pilot. I do believe my lilí man has surpassed Pieís co-pilot ability when he turned 2, we just seem to get each other and airplanes a little bit better....

What an awesome trip. And I also hadn't seen this story until now - very special!

Angel Fire is one of my favorite places, haven't been there in a while (and the airport can be very tricky a lot of the year). It's a beautiful place. I grew up near there and miss it.
