Today was one of those late-winter/early-spring stunners: 77º F. here in Denver, and not a breath of wind at any altitude over the high peaks of the Rockies. It was so beautiful, Marcia and I took the Pipistrel Sinus and headed to Leadville, which boasts the highest paved runway in the USA: 9934' MSL. Hadn't landed there in 30 years, but it doesn't get any easier than today: no wind and 'only' 11,200' density altitude.
I've never seen so many people enjoying themselves in the high country: hikers above treeline, snow boarders and back-country skiers, snow machines running in packs in the high mountain bowls. Everywhere you looked there were people down below enjoying the day.
