APRIL 1, 2013


The goal of this 2h23min, 360-mile aerial adventure was to photograph the peaks of the Enchantments, which were now free of the clouds that had enveloped the summits on our flight to this spot a few days previous. We photographed quite a lineup of rocky snow-peppered summits: Mt. Stuart, Sherpa Peak, Argonaut Peak, Colchuck Peak, Dragontail Peak, Little Annapurna, McClellan Peak, Enchantment Peak, Temple Ridge (Prusik Peak), Cannon Mountain, and Cashmere Mountain. Also, en route to the Enchantments, we made a looping path in order to photograph several other prominent peaks on the way. 

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