Exploring the White River Gorge in Schweizer 300C this weekend.
Taking off from river sandbar yesterday.
Morning Glory - Mt Rainier NP. Will never forget this sunrise in one of my favorite places!
Wheel I’ll be darned, would you look at that...
Even grizzlies don’t always like to get their feet wet....
Drone Selfie...while 200 feet up a Douglas Fir. Let’s just say that launching and catching a drone by hand in this environment was a new and challenging experience. Thanks for your help Leo!
Day 2 of Tree Climbing Class this weekend. Leo shows us the ropes on a 250 foot Douglas Fir.
Scored a signed copy of the new book 50 Peaks by Scott Kranz @scott_kranz last night at Josh’s @outofthewoods party. It chronicles his feat of summitting 50 peaks in North Cascades National Park in one season in celebration of its 50th Anniversary. Check out his site if you’re interested in a copy. 50% of proceeds donated to the park.
Heli-Bike Commute - Here’s a little Hyperlapse video split into 2 parts of my first helicopter bicycle commute this morning. It was so much fun, I still can’t stop smiling! 8 minutes flight time, 15 minutes biking, and another 10 start up and cool down. Thanks to Glenn for letting me land on your awesome grass strip! Also many thanks to my great neighbors for putting up with my flying hobby...you know who you are!
Green River Takeoff - This river south of Seattle (of “Green River Killer” fame) is much more than a dumping ground for dead bodies. It’s actually a beautiful river and a fine place to land a heli!
