This is the approach into KGWS (5916' MSL), which is nestled in a valley, which requires a blind approach from the south around that red outcropping. This picture shows the view just when the runway becomes visible. [Sony F707]

An incredible landscape and a beautiful approach. There is an airfield in Mexico that has a similar approach (although not in a scenery as nice as this one). The place is called "Chilpancingo", and is known for beeing particularly dangerous, because it's a blind approach too. This one's amazing.
