"Aerial Photography of Mt. Olympus and Company"
Olympus, Athena, Tom, Valhallas, Meany, Carrie, Lone Tree
DECEMBER 30, 2012


This was my first aerial adventure over the Olympic Mountains with John Scurlock. During this December afternoon flight John and I photographed the mighty Mt. Olympus, as well as the nearby Valhallas, Mt. Meany, Mt. Carrie, and The Tree at Lone Tree Pass. The Olympics were a winter wonderland after a recent onslaught of snowy storms. The entire flight from Concrete to the Olympics and back to Concrete was 2h10min and 325 miles long. The aerial photography portion of the flight shown in the map below lasted about an hour. 

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