11/16/2007 – Mt. St. Helens Flight with Marcus

Mt. St. Helens with Mt. Rainier in the Background

Once again, I’m really behind on reporting cool events… More than a month ago I had the priviledge to go up flying for the second time with my good friendĀ Marcus. This time he took us up to and around Mt. St. Helens, and it was spectacular. I’ll let the photos speak for themselves. Check out the slideshow here.

    Wow, David, those are some incredible and beautiful shots! Cool that you got a chance to do that and that the weather cooperated. : )
    Thanks, too, for your comment on my blog. Of course, I remember that Simpsons episode. So classic. : ) And, yeah, Kite Runner is really worth reading. Not a super “light” read – has some heavy issues – but it’s well written and makes you think. Two thumbs up in my book. Now I just finished The Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood, which didn’t really seem like it’d be my kind of book but turned out to be good. Not sure what I’ll start now. Choosing a book is a big step, you know. : ) Maybe I should post about THAT. Hmm… . Anyway, have a good one.

    So many Mt St Helens!!!
    I just cannot imagine flying so close to those mountains. Someday I’ll try…who knows when.

    Thank you so much for sharing them:)

    I’m impressed with the line scrolls, scaling and rotation, like the Genesis and Super Nintendo. Like, totally. In other words, it would have been cool to actually be up there, flying, to rotate around the mountains and see them intersect and move about slowly in space as you circle around. It’s a like the Geoffrey Gyroscopes in the seventh auras.

    Grandpa would be so proud. That would make him smile. We would be looking at these on slides for years to come. Very amazing, and beautiful. There was a peice of grandpa in that for me. :)
    thanks for sharing!
