James Stevenson maneuvers in the canyon. Hidden Splendor is the perfect name for this gem of a backcountry airstrip, hidden deep inside a red rock canyon near a defunct uranium mine. The mine, originally named the Delta mine, was started in 1952 by Vernon Pick, an electrician from Minnesota. Pick sold the tremendously productive mine to Atlas Corporation, owned by Floyd Odlum, who renamed it Hidden Splendor. The landing strip was built during these boom years and has been used by aviators ever since. The mine became famous after a 1954 article in Life magazine but Atlas abandoned it in 1957 after production dropped. Photo by Brady Lane.
