"The Jumping Jackrabbit Flight"
Bear, Pickets, Despair, Triumph, Bacon, Eldorado, Hidden Lake Lookout
MARCH 8, 2012


Clouds muted the morning sunlight as we flew around the north sides of Mt. Redoubt and Bear Mountain. Just after an aerial tour of the wintery Picket Range, the sun rose above the clouds and we were surrounded by snowy summits bathed in golden light. We flew circles around Mt. Despair, Mt. Triumph, and Bacon Peak. We also spotted and photographed some recent slab avalanches. Then we continued onward towards Eldorado, where winds swirled snow around the summit. We finished our photography aims with some fly-bys of Hidden Lake Lookout.

The morning aerial adventure — which originated and ended in Concrete and involved a side-trip to Skagit Valley Regional Airport — totaled 2.5 hours and 349 miles. Strangely enough, the flight path resembled a jumping jackrabbit.


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