Default Converse County WY KDGW

Converse County airport in Wyoming has a decent gravel strip. Comes very handy in a strong cross wind on main runway. Don't believe listed avgas price it's one dollar more for the gallon

Next time you are up this way come up to my neck of the woods. I have always bought my fuel at KGEY. That price is not a lie.

KWRL (my home base) price unfortunately is also not a lie!

They must be expecting company? Lots of talk about that lately. Good to see you’re out and about.

Default Marble CO

Marble, Colorado is an airstrip located in a valley 17 miles southwest of Aspen KASE. A pretty place at 7800 feet. You have to sign a waiver prior to landing there. Here is the link.



I was trying to fly to Marble for couple years and finally made it. Approaching from the west at 11 thousand feet.



I was early morning and I decided to land to the west. Plenty of space to turn around and descend to the east. There are some high trees on a hill which could eat some runway. Slip.



Warning; it's not a golf course.



Susan the caretaker met me and pointed to great hiking areas. Jumpstart the Dog marked the wheel fairing.





Taxi the runway full length for takeoff seemed forever. Susan told me she had plenty of RVs landing here both training wheels and tail draggers. My hat is off to you guys that wasn't easy.



Exited toward Aspen, checked in with approach and went to Leadville.



Those who fly for living can imagine how busy is KASE on Sunday afternoon. One way in one way out.
