The aircraft in the old photo from 1971 is a Mitsubishi MU2 turboprop aircraft. This trip took us to Quebec, Canada for a hunting trip for my dad and his dad.
I remember the flight too, a bit scary because of the thunderstorms. The VW Bug has been set on that rocky pad every summer since the 1990s and was my mother’s idea. Such talent!
She passed in 2012, and a family friend has planted flowers in the bug and elsewhere around the home to honor her love of plants and flowers.
The white roundabout has been a feature in one wedding many years ago.
Flash flood warnings have been issued for the Spring Mountains now which are nowhere near the valley so it will again be high and dry in the valley.
