Description Baker Sipapu ! freakish thing that happened along the foot of the mountain. Sometimes, for no reason, a current of air would start down from the mountain peak, swing into a valley of Canyonlands, and meeting the up-drafts of the heated air from the sun-blasted rocks, build a small pocket of turbulence and down-drafts that were dangerous. He was in this one before he could do anything about it, and his only course of action was to fly on through it--he was committed. He fought plane with all his skill, and it raised and almost gained stability, when a vicious gust drove up the right wing. The plane turned into the butte, and Bob knew he had bought the farm. The plane hit the rock peak head on, and Bob was flung out the opened door, past the butte, missing it by inches, catapulted down into a big cedar tree on the top of a cut bank and fell over into the wash, taking most of the tree with him. He landed with a thud! and heard the bone in his left thigh snap, although he retained consciousness. Behind him, the plane exploded into flames. He was far too close to this fire, even with the protection of the cut bank, and he figured he had better make a run for it. When he tried to rise, he found that running was out-but he could still crawl, and he set off up the wash as fast as he could manage. It was not a moment too soon; he could feel the searing of the heat from the plane, even protected as he was by the bank. After a couple of hundred yards, the wash bank started to play out, but he was above the plane by that
