More....Northern SEKI and Mammoth Mtn. area aerial photos.

Postby Packtofish » Thu Nov 09, 2006 2:52 pm

Posting pictures is easier than I thought, so here are some more aerial photographs of the Sierra. This is on an west to east crossing at 41,000 feet on Tuesday. If you were to draw a line between fresno and a point, 40 or so miles north of Bishop, thats where these were taken from. I don't know if anybodys interested in these sorts of photos or not but, here ya go. I also don't know my SEKI landmarks very well so I can't really point out anything specific for orientation in them. I sure those more familiar with the area can reference some landmarks. Enjoy!

Thanks, I'll put some more up when the snow starts piling up. It's always interesting to me watching everything dissapear slowly (and sometimes not so slowly!) throughout the late fall.

Wow, what nice photos. Those will sure give you something to daydream about during the winter! Check that: I'LL daydream looking at these. There are some lakes in these photos that are the stuff of which dreams are made.
