Default Long cross-country Coast to Coast

Just posted the web log of my long cross-country flight out west. Baltimore to Niagara Falls, along the Canadian border to Seattle, down to San Ciego, then Tucson, Dallas and home. 67 hours in the RV-7. Lots of good pics. Spent entirely too much time putting it together. Check it out!

Those photos are spectacular! I've only viewed "Day 1", but I know what I'll be doing for the rest of the day (grin). Could you tell us what kind of camera you were using, please?

Thanks. The photos are really awesome. They look like you were pretty low so I'm wondering if you used a long lens. When I flew across the Country I used my cheap 5 Mp Kodak and my Garmin Virb Elite video camera. My pictures didn't come out nearly as well as yours. Duh!

Thanks for the writeup! Wife and I are planning a very similar trip for whenever my airplane is finished and tested, and this was good motivation

Very nice! Very nice pictures. What camera do you use to allow you to fly and take such nice snapshots? Assuming just one handed. I use my iPhone and get lucky once in a while with the perfect light at the right time, but wow, it looks like most of your pictures came out great!
