I flew out of Telluride this weekend in the Mooney B. I had to go west a bit for altitude, but soon turned east and headed over Imogene Pass. I did a short side trip to Ouray, CO, then went south, landing at Durango. Nice scenery in this part of the state. It's high, gold country, though I didn't notice any miners. Anyway, on my approach at Durango, I rediscovered a little thing called ground effect. The Mooney likes to float down the runway without setting her wheels down any too soon. It was an attention getter there for a few moments. Where's that speed brake button again, dang it?
What a rush!
