Here are some more photos from our flight last weekend in the Owyhee Mountains, Idaho. It is an amazingly remote area that sees little traffic compared to the rest of Idaho. What an amazing way to watch a sunrise as the earth awakens (we probably awoke some campers as we ripped by at 120 mph). Enjoy!

    Thank you very much for sharing these mountain shots. I look forward to seeing more. Maybe in my next life I will be a mountain climber – if not as a professional then as a hobbyist!!! Mountains and open waters are just so expansive to the soul!!

    The sad thing I notice about fields (as shown in one of the images) is that USA has ripped out trees and hedgerows at the boundaries of the fields turning the area into a wasteland against wildlife.

  67. May 31, 2012

    The play of light is amazing! Congrats on being Freshly Pressed!

  68. May 31, 2012

    Ah …. another lost place we all need to visit.

    Have you been to Idaho? Were you at ground level, or Flight Level 8 or higher?

    Flight level 8 is 8,000 feet if I remember correctly.
