Snippet from Greg's Flying Carpet podcast, "Birthday Flowers"

Back to Top
Sunday morning, we sailed 2.5 hours westward from Phoenix, escaping uncharacteristic rain and ice laden clouds for sunshine. Beneath our wings, however, the terrain became increasingly barren, broken only by the string of gaudy casinos lining the Colorado River at Laughlin, Nevada, bypassing Las Vegas, we plummeted over the desolate Funeral Mountains into a brutal moonscape of bone white salt flats cradled in mineral tinted rock. Even with 60 mile visibilities, I didn't identify Furnace Creek Airport until we were just four miles away. The one giveaway in the featureless, monochromatic landscape was the adjacent palm studded golf course, the only visible green in the entire valley. Flying down, wind over parched white salt are altimeter indicated only 600 ft above sea level. Field elevation here is 210 ft below sea level. This place is scary, said Jean. When we landed, I hope we'll be okay here. Not a blade of grass could be seen, and nearby dust devils swirled white with salt
