A beautiful private-use airport called Buckhorn Ranch, located near Crested Butte, Colorado, caught the eye of AOPA member Andy Young. The airport, located atop an airport with an estimated elevation of 8,980 feet, provided Young a breathtaking photo opportunity and earned him the winner-of- the-month vote by fellow AOPA members. See the Web site for a full-size version of the photograph and to find out how you too can become a contender for cash prizes totaling $9,500, including the grand prize of $1,000. Submit your own general aviation snapshots for a chance to win in AOPA Pilot's 2007 General Aviation Photography Contest, which runs through September 4, 2007.
