Another aerial photo.
I have to give a giant shout out to our pilot Tim, he was the best. His family represents 4 or 5 generations in the Moab area, he had wonderful stories of all the areas we flew over, I could have listened to him all day.
He was also an amazing pilot. He became somewhat famous in this area by being the first person to fly through Corona Arch – there are some dramatic photos of the stunt around Moab. He has since flown through 13 or 14 arches different in this area.
While we flying over the Escalante River, he offered to fly us through Stevens Arch! I was all over the idea, but Just being in a small plane was already testing Janine’s comfort level. The idea of dropping below the steep canyon walls, and flying through what appeared from our perspective, to be a tiny opening, was just too much – so she said no. Now she says she would be up for it, so hopefully next time.
