PHOTOSET 13
"A Pleasant Evening above the Southern North Cascades"
Three Fingers Lookout, Whitehorse, Red, Vesper, Big Four, Del Campo, Columbia, Wilmans, Kyes, Monte Cristo, Sloan, Pugh
FEBRUARY 15, 2012


“Well another awesome flight.... incredibly beautiful conditions.  That is the quintessential winter mountain flight.... squeezed into that brief opportunity between storms....”
-email from John after the flight.


This evening flight was 1h 38 minutes and 239 miles long. It was perfect winter flying conditions, with calm skies, snowy summits, and swirling valley clouds. First we photographed Whitehorse and Three Fingers (including, of course, the snow-encased fire lookout on the summit). Then we headed south towards Vesper and Big Four and Del Campo, and then flew loops around the tight valleys of the Monte Cristo range (Columbia, Wilmans Peaks, Kyes, Monte Cristo). As the sun set, we flew home past a pink-hued Sloan, Pugh, and White Chuck. What a way to spend an evening after work!

The flight path is shown to the right. (This flight line is made with actual GPS data.)
