Wickenburg - Pilot's Rest / Cessna 182RG-II / VFR

Just a short flight from Wickenburg (where I landed last night) to a very tiny gravel airstrip called Pilot's Rest, near Paulden (northwest of Prescott, Arizona). I stayed close to the ground and flew inbound to the Drake VOR, then back outbound to this little airstrip, which, for some reason, appeals to me (I think it's the name). I didn't bother to file a flight plan for this flight.

I'm getting better at holding an altitude in this Cessna (which does not have altitude hold in the autopilot).
