"Aerial Inspection of the Seismic Station on Glacier Peak"
Glacier, Tenpeak, Clark, Luahna, Bonanza
JULY 21, 2012


The main purpose of the flight was to obtain some photographs of a seismic station on the northwest flank of Glacier Peak. The station had stopped working in mid-winter; although it had resumed working in the spring, there was some concern that the winter’s onslaught of storms had caused some damage that would need to be repaired (as had happened in the past). It was our mission to find out. This involved flying close to the mountain to capture the details of the seismic station. We swooped by twice, snapping a number of photographs (didn’t see anything obviously amiss), and then headed for home, making a detour to the massive west side of Bonanza on our way back. All in all, a successful mission!

The flight was 1 hour 13 minutes and 180 miles long.

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