    I went flying on a very calm morning a couple of years ago. How calm was it?

    I saw this fellow pulling his trailer at a good clip westbound on a dusty road in the middle of the desert.

    P9300175.jpeg

    Then I got in front of him and got this angle looking east -- his dust trail was still hanging over the road ten miles back.

    Possibly, but I think those are soybeans. The harvesters have paddle wheels, and I think those are used for soy and wheat.

    Corn harvesters have spikes like in the image below- those strip the ears off the plant, and only those go into the machine:

    Thanks, I love yours as well. Mine were taken from a cell phone as I was flying and it shows. Every time I've had a real camera on a flight, I forget about it or get too busy.

    You encouraged me so here is another of Alaska. This is the Harding ice-field from about 12,000 feet.

    Ok, one more...

    Here is the Turnagain Arm just south of Anchorage during the winter. Normally this is open for boating and I kayaked through this area in July of the same year. By November, it looks like this and should be treated as lava when flying over..

    Anchorage International is just off the right of the photo and the land on the upper left is the furthest point of the Keni Peninsula.

    I'll reach land in the area around Hope during this flight.

    Beautiful area, but definitely the weirdest place I have ever worked at in Alaska. It is amazing how much money they spend to keep their 50 year old VW bugs going.....

    I felt like I was in a Cheech and Chong movie....

    Had to look at this more than twice. It's the same round pen between the two buildings which threw me off.

    It confused me too, when I took the pictures off the camera. It is the same round pen, and the fence shadows make that part of the pictures look out of focus, to me.

    If you follow the links, you can zoom in on the image. It looks like a piece of equipment to me.

    I suppose that is the best explanation, for now. There wasn't much, or any, mist, but it does look like the inside of a glory, without the color.

    Here's a couple of nice ones

    I scored an upgrade, that flight- you can tell because the glory is centered on first class.

    Flew over a quarry and the gun club range complex the other day. There’s a 200 yard rifle range, a 600 yard (if I recall correctly), several shotgun and pistol as well as a couple of silhouette ranges. I haven’t been there in a lot of years, working from memory here.

    It's not the size, it's how high they can climb due to sheer numbers. Ever see those zombie movies where they get over the big wall because there are just so many of them? That's deer in NE and IA some years... yard rats.

    I suppose they moved east? My impression the past 2 or 3 years are numbers are down. I'm used to seeing them south of KLNK. I think there's a tunnel that lets them cross I-80
