1978 - These pictures were taken from an aircraft owned by my cousin Dennis who flew me and some friends over the Robbers Roost country while we were on a trip to Lake Powell.

Know as the Robbers Roost Flats, cattle from the Ekker ranch grazed.

   

Using small aircraft is common in the area. These photos were taken from my cousinís airplane.
