Jan 2012 Ladies do fly In Wyoming. Really!!
What? Still not enough snow for skis in Lisa Martin’s part of the world. Amazing! Doesn’t matter, she’s still a very busy girl! Thanks for your note and pictures Lisa!
Still waiting for enough snow for skis in the Big Horn Basin (Wyoming), but I might actually have John talked into just hauling them up to a friend’s ranch strip so we can put them on there and try them out. He’s about got me convinced that we need a set with retractable wheels. Know any for sale?
And would you look? I found (well with the help of Judy and LLT) some ladies here who like to fly enough to be pilots themselves. I’m so enjoying the companionship of women pilots right in my home town, Worland, WY. This picture is me and Bailey. She has some great scholarships for flight training in college and dreams of being an aerial applicator. There’s some gumption for us!
I threw in one scenery picture.Â Sunrise in the Wind River Basin on my way home from dropping John off in Lander, WY to get his helicopter home before a winter storm settled in.
Finally, me and Mary Ann who I met through Judy and the LLT site. She just moved to town and was looking to connect with other, the other, woman pilot in town. She’s a very experienced and accomplished pilot and we are having so much fun together.
She talked me into joining the 99s, which she has been a part of for a long time and so now there are, I think, 9 of us in Wyoming. First time we went up and looked at the elk, a herd of about 1500 in the Big Horn Mtns. Today we flew west to the main Rocky chain, over the 15 mile herd of wild horses and elk, by Amelia Earhart’s old stomping grounds (Kirwin, an abandoned mining ghosttown) and then on to Thermopolis (the world’s largest mineral hot springs) for lunch at Las Fuentes. Dog-gone-it, we didn’t take a picture of the courtesy van that got us to town. We could have hauled a baseball team!
