Default Ice Crystals More Rocks and Ice Photos

Ice Crystal Photo


Lots of Sun, Rocks, Snow & Ice




The next three are the same peak, just a different zoom power used:






Glaciers are Rivers of Ice




A little Haze for the flight home:


A final look at Mt Foraker



The three photos of the same peak, shows what the camera sees , real life has so many more different things to see, RV's allow you to explore those views.

Best regards,
Mike Bauer

Default Teslin Lake

Beautiful photos, too, Mike!

I had taken March break off well before I'd heard of COVID and was hoping to take the kids towards your neck of the woods, skiing in Alyeska. Instead I guess I'll just spend the time at home, flying as much as I can!

I'm not really much of a photographer. By far most of my photos turn out kinda blurry like this one taken this afternoon over Teslin Lake. (Maybe it's because the RV flies too fast? ) This is my favorite time of the year to fly in this area. So many inviting looking frozen lakes lakes to land on.

But, to answer your question, yes, I have removed headsets in flight. In my RV-6A, I would not want to fly more than 20 minutes, even if I could (no mic, no speaker). The RV-10, I could do one long flight.
Yes, a lot of yelling going on back then. Beautiful shots, just stunning.

To Andy Muir: (south bound over the mountains pic) I see an open gap on your top cowl what does that do, give heat to the canopy? Nice pics

Cats and dogs have sensitive ears, why do only the humans have hearing protection? Just an observation, and question, maybe a vet or hearing specialist could comment..
I'd like to see a video of someone trying to put some sort of headset on a cat. The cat most definitely would win that battle.

That dark line isn't really a gap it's just a poorly fitting access panel for getting to the ends of the hinge pins that attach the upper cowl.

Looks so familiar. I flew CH-47s out of Fairbanks in the early 70s. Beautiful pictures. We always wore mukluks, but they were not surplus! Great memories

Default Alaska photos

Amazing photos! Was it challenging to take when the sun on the left side of the plane? Maybe my hubby will talk me in to doing this trek one day...
