Moose Creek is an isolated strip. There are no roads leading there and the ranger station is supplied by a team of pack mules that stop by a few times over the summer. The runways and taxi areas are kept neatly mowed by hitching up the visiting mules to a large mechanical mower.

Moose Creek #2 '05
I took this pic while standing at the approach end of rwy 4. This is the narrow canyon that you fly for a straight-in
to rwy 4, or a base leg to rwy1. It's tight, but quite doable if you keep your speed under control. That's the Selway
River below. Very popular with white water rafters.
This unfortunate Cessna driver didn't hug the rocks and trees while making his base leg to rwy 1. Here he is about
100 ft. high and has already used up a lot of runway. Fortunately for him, rwy 1 is 4,000 ft. long. He used almost
all of it before he was able to stop.
Doug and I climb out of the Selway River canyon on our way south to Johnson Creek.
