Great pics! do you monitor your blood O2 level while at altitude? good info to know to adjust your O2 flow accordingly.

Default Denali

Difficult to choose which photo of yours will be on the calendar next yr. On the ground, I was only able to get one photo of Denali, as normally covered w/ cloud cover...(driving S. from Talkeetna, Healey area), got lucky. 35mm Denali photo in my library blown up, 8"x10" in frame. As my cousins live up there, I'm going to copy yours w/ excellent description & send to 1-2 of them. Thank You!.

Outstanding photos! A few years ago, we did a tour through Denali and went on one of the flights over the mountain. It wasn't as clear as your photos, but it was clear enough to get photos of a mountain climbing team crossing the saddle of the mountain toward the peak. There aren't many memories I cherish as much as that trip and seeing your photos just makes me want to head back, this time in my -8. Thanks!

Forgive me for latching on to your thread, but flying in Alaska is about the most fun a pilot can have with his (or her) clothes on. I took these in March, 2014.

Here are a couple other views of Denali taken by the pilot in the white/blue plane:

Default Thank You

Bret: No don't monitor-just put the mask on and cranked the O2 on. Knew it was some rough terrain, wanted to be sure the brain was functioning properly, probably had way too much excess oxygen flow.

Maverick Thank you for the comments!

Mark: Hope you can make it up again. Truly worth checking out each and every time it is open for viewing.

Snopercod: Fantastic photos, now I want to get closer....Thank you for sharing!
