This is an aerial shot from about 8000 feet while traveling at 120 mph trying not to soil myself.

Nice shot! Really shows the expanse of the boulderfield...

Furthermore -- what do you fly? You look to have a good service ceiling judging by the Crestone photo. That Quandary flight looks super bumpy! Rough day to be on the leeward side of those ridges.

Those were taken when I was flying a BE1900D. I miss the mighty Beech.

Another post, how about another three.

These are awesome!

Any chance you guys would be willing to post them in the "User Photos" section if I create an "Aerial Photos" category?? Then they could be found in one place and still linked-to in this thread.

I added the "14er Aerial Photos" category and moved over the shots which were already added to the 14ers category. Great stuff!
