Plane trip to Rainbow Bridge

Dad and Mom and I had long planned to go to Rainbow Bridge together.
There are only 2 ways to get there:
1) a 13+ mile hike overland through the Navajo Reservation
2) by boat.
We had planned to go by boat (they offer commercial tours),
but the tour takes quite a long time.
So Dad had a Brilliant Idea.
After all, we have already been to Rainbow Bridge by boat,
back in ... oh, 1982, I guess it was.
So Dad suggested we go by plane!
A scenic airplane ride does not, of course, stop at the bridge,
but we got some good views going over it.
We also circled over the dam, much of the lake, and at the foot of Navajo Mountain.
As you can see, the light was not optimal, but it was a really fun thing to do.

That middle picture is just brilliant.

What kind of plane were you in?

It was a Small Plane.
I forget the type; Dad would know.
It could seat 6 passengers plus the pilot.
It would be great to rent a plane and have JARED fly it- over the Grand Canyon!
