Flying with the Dempsey by Jeff Gilkey

eg: stopmotion, new-york, street
I met Frank and his "Red Devil" Apollo Delta Jet 912S trike late in the afternoon. We did some low and fast flights over over the Rio Puerco then made a final pass over the PPC site before returning to our home airports. Frank to Double Eagle and myself to Belen.

    Nice riparian landscape, big cottonwoods and other water loving vegetation along the stream bed creates a nice contrast with the higher flat open desert plain. I notice a lot of interesting erosion features along your route. I particularly like the fractal patterns the arroyos form flowing into the main channel. I also see hints of cropmarks along the benches, suggesting habitation sites of early inhabitants along the route. Lots to see when you have an aerial perspective of the landscape.

    Yes, this was ancient Indian land of the Anasazi's. I've found habitation marks, squares, kiva's, etc near this location. About 20 miles to the North in this Rio Puerco valley, there are numerous ongoing excavations. I'll sometimes go out over an area I've flown hundreds of times and see a new ancient remnant dwelling.
