Alex's Thank You Flight 10-7-17

After several false starts in June, last Thursday Lillian and I were finally able to make use of the gift certificate that the Monday hiking group gave us as a farewell present over a year ago.  We took a scenic flight with Skinner Aviation out of Ashland airport over the Cascades to Crater Lake National Park and back.  Going that way we not only had sunny weather but also great visibility.  Had we gone west over the Siskiyous we would have encountered haze due to the Applegate fires. 

The flight was a great opportunity to get a bird's eye view of some our favorite hiking locales.  Photos from the flight are below. Thank you very much for giving us this great treat.
