My favorite place was a little lake in a glacial cirque without a name on the map. They call it Will's lake after Will who was the first to land there. He showed it to me and Shana and politely asked if I wanted him to talk me through the landing or have him demonstrate the landing to me. Will explained that because of the head wall of the cirque, we could only land with calm conditions or a slight tailwind up canyon to be able to take off into the wind down canyon. It is one of those one-way in, one-way (the way you came) out places. After we did the first pass to check the winds and I got a close look, I told Will I would prefer to have him demonstrate the landing and then I would do the takeoff. ;-)
Attached is a picture out the front as we turned onto short final. You can see why a go-around is not a good idea. Also, notice the altimeter and look at the landscape!
