There's a lot down at the bottom of the MH cliffs too, relatively large pieces. Not surprising; it would be weird if the prop ended up on the edge but nothing went over. And because it's lower than the top of the cliffs, it's an easier way to view the wreckage, if you don't feel compelled to see the prop. [I'm actually kidding; it's considerably harder to get to :lol: ]

thanks Mike!... Let me see if i got it right, since the MH is "V" shaped, I am taking what you said as top of the left side of the "V", right?

Nope...sorry for the confusion. It’s at the bottom of the V...not on the edge but in that general area.

I did the Mississippi Traverse earlier this month. I didn't go up as high as Illumination Rock (next time) but did get to see the propeller. :) Fire on Warm Springs in the distance.
