National Geographic : 1977 May
Embrace the wind-swept solitude of a sandy beach as you head for the water with scuba gear in hand and salt water spray in your face. Gingerly board a rubber raft and challenge the twisting, curling white-water rapids of the Snake River. Or snap on a pair of finely waxed skis and silently glide down the peaceful slopes of Bridger Mountain. These are just a few of the more than 250 fascinating adventures awaiting you in the striking, full color Beechcraft Adventure Guide. We've prepared this exclusive collection of unusual adventures to show you how a Beechcraft gives you the freedom to discover and explore those enchanting lands of your dreams. Name a destination, and a Beechcraft can whisk you there in style and comfort.
