Seattle - Swanson (Eatonville) / Cessna 182RG II (N7109V) / VFR

This was just a simple flight at dusk out to the tiny airport in Eatonville. It has one little runway, a very narrow, unpaved sort of taxiway around it, and a small building (I enhanced the original scenery to more or less match the layout of the airport in real life, minus the structures).

I left Seattle on the 157 radial out of SEA. There are several airports along this radial, and the first one that I took to be Swanson was in fact Pierce County; I was almost ready to land when I realized the DME wasn't right at all. I started at descent towards Kapowsin, too, but that wasn't it, either. Finally I located the real airport and landed there, which I verified by checked that I was indeed at about 32 DME from SEA.
