8/16/09 Aerial Pictures - Evo Valley Region

Postby Packtofish » Sun Aug 16, 2009 5:19 pm

Took some pictures today flying from Aspen to Monterey. Unfortunately, I didn't have my good camera up in the cockpit but they came out OK.

Bishop and the South Lake/North Lake canyon.

Thanks for posting those wonderful photos. If they don't give someone the High Sierra itch, I don't know what would.

This reminds me of a better version of some photos my wife took out of the window of a commercial flight to the East Coast in late July 1995 (or was it 1998?). It had been a very heavy winter and I wasn't sure whether the targets of our big trip that year would be frozen over. Her flight was well timed and her photos covered exactly what we needed to see--the lakes were totally frozen over, so I opted for Plan B.

Getting back to your photos, I'm just thinking of the amazing number of lakes with nice fish in them caught in those views. Wow.
Since my fishing (etc.) website is still down, you can be distracted by geology stuff at: http://www.fresnostate.edu/csm/ees/facu ... ayshi.html

Every time I fly over I'm amazed at how diverse and large the range is. I put my thumb up to the window and realize the the space covered by it, would take a week to cover on foot. I have flown all over the world and I have not yet been to a spot that has impressed me as much as what we have here in our own backyard. We are very fortunate to be able to travel and explore so easily, one of the finest alpine regions on earth.

I'm headed back to the east coast in the morning. If it's clear I'll try to get some more pictures up tomorrow afternoon.

PS.....Whomever moved them to the Photography Section, thanks. I was in a hurry and forgot about posting in the right section.
