Flew from Front Range (6mi. SW of DIA) to Montrose, CO and back today. 2000 Cessna 172 w/GPS, never flown one with GPS, that was pretty nice. Got to learn a bit about mountain flying and catching thermals. Flew over the Black Canyon of the Gunnison on the way back. Anyway, it was just beautiful weather, just a bity bumpy coming ove the foothills into SW Dnever area. Awesoem scenery and the aspens are changing which was another added visual bonus. Thankfully John "sKerry" did not rank a TFR.
