A New View of the Chicken Dance Ranch

On the morning of July 4th, my brother-in-law, Jim, called me. He wondered if we were at the CDR. We sure were so he wanted to know if we wanted to go for a short airplane ride. What?! An airplane ride?! You betcha! So Jim flew over from the coast and we met him at the Okanogan Airport. What takes us four hours to go by land, he did in just over an hour.

The weather was perfect for a flight around the Okanogan area. Jim took us over the CDR and various other spots around the valley. We made a quick landing at the Omak airport, just because we could. Then it was time to head back to Okanogan. I had a blast! Best of all, I got to see our house from the air! Thanks, Jim!!

How wonderful for you. The Chicken Dance Ranch looks great from the air, and, of course, I still love the name!

How cool is that? I'm not sure I'd have the nerve to go, but I'm glad you did and took those great photos of your place. :)
