"A Sunday Afternoon Mount Baker Flight"
   Baker, Lincoln, Colfax, Sherman Crater
FEBRUARY 26, 2012

Puffy cumulus clouds enveloped the Cascades, but as we flew higher we were happy to see the10,781-ft Mount Baker creating a pocket of clear sky around its massive self.  We flew loops around the summit at about 12,500 ft, photographing the steam vents of the Sherman Crater, a large avalanche cut on the northeast side of the mountain, and a mystical Lincoln Peak shrouded in clouds. What a way to spend a Sunday afternoon!

This flight totaled 78 minutes and 191 air miles, and originated and ended at the airstrip in Concrete.

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