Landing the Zenith STOL CH 701 on a 6100-ft ridge

We found a ridge - it looked too good to pass up so we landed!

Cool. The surface looks smooth enough to land a 601 on! How much length have you got and where is it?

I hope you have a parking brake... looks like a long walk home.

 

Looks like tons of fun! I love the photos, they keep me working hard as I imagine the possibilities for the sheets of metal in the corner- wondering where they will take me some day.

Wow, that's unreal. Where is it, up the Rakaia somewhere??
