Scenery looks as if it could be somewhere in the Cedarberg mountains but I don't recognise the spot and it's not quite the right sort of vegetation.

Oooo...forgot to check in.

Along the Rio Grande somewhere?

That's right. South end of Big Bend National park. Some 110 mils south of the McDonnald observatory.

Google

Back then - mid 70s - you could go all day and see no one. Made our way back east keeping quite near the river. Sometimes It was little more than a stream, with big cat paw marks in the sand. Winter, of course.

pigboat: I think I know where it is, but I cheated. That one got kind of bent a few years ago, didn't it?

Mish Nish I'll give you that, it's actually in Labrador.

Magnus I had to check that, the airplane did indeed crash in 1981. Neil Aird's site says "The aircraft rolled inverted and crashed." Roll a Beaver inverted and it'll do that.

RT I wonder what that second light is to the left of the flap indicator? One of them's the low fuel pressure light, the other must be the fire warning. Can't be a stall warning, the Rodent never had one.
