    Wow, what a great trip. This sounds like a great “bucket list” item. I think I met you at Perkins Field, NV (U08) about a month ago during a refueling stop.

    Hi! Yes you did! That was right before I started the trip. By the way, you live in a magical part of the country. "Valley of Fire" does not make it onto any tourist Top-100 lists but in my opinion, its way more spectacular than the Grand Canyon ... and you dont need to stay in a shoulder width corridor at 11,500'

    Thanks for posting. I have been thinking of doing this ever since John M. flew to the Bahamas. I think the FL Keys will do for me though. I definitely want to land at KittyHawk Natl. Monument too.

    What a great Kitfox trip - I am equally envious and admiring. I would like to read more about this journey if you decide to put something together. I'm a big fan of long trips in the Kitfox and about to embark on another summer of trans-European flying so thanks for the inspiration.

    Yes the Valley of Fire is a hidden gem that most miss as they tend to fixate on the nearby Grand Canyon. Whenever I have an out of town guest, who is comfortable in a small aircraft, I take them on a sunrise or sunset flight through the Valley of Fire. Everyone has been amazed.

    Enjoyed your write up and pics. Sounds like you have the makings for a more detailed, in-depth book. Your adventure has got me thinking...

    All the best!

    Great trip you took. You almost came over my house in Illinois. If you ever pass again let me know and I'll fix you up with a good night's stay.
