PHOTOSET 35
"Mount Rainier and the Chilliwacks"
Rainier, Little Tahoma, Rahm, Custer, Redoubt, Moxes, Bear, etc.
MAY 1, 2013

The purpose of this early morning flight was to get “better photos” of Little Tahoma and Mt. Rahm. Of course along the way we photographed other peaks too! Since we started before sunrise, we were back on the ground by 8am, what a way to start the day! Flight distance: 390 miles; Flight time: 2 hours 27 min.

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