My brother asked if I wanted to come down for the night to Redmond, OR where they are vacationing. The weather was perfect and the wife and kids were in Montana so I said decided "Heck Ya!".
Fantanstic evening for a flight.
The Dalles Airport
Forest fire and TFR just N.E. of Mt Jefferson.
Smith Rock area
Turning final for runway 28 at Robert's Field, Redmond, OR.
Google maps said driving down would take 5 hours and 28 minutes, but it took just 1 hour and 25 minutes in the RV-7A. :)
The next morning. Here is the house they are renting at Eagle Crest Resort.
Great views of 3 Sisters.
Bailed out just before noon. Would have loved to stay for the day but the Dogs at home were probably starting to get hungry.
Smith Rock area again.
Lake Billy Chinook
Mt Adams and Mt Rainier
I flew pretty close to Mt St. Helens on the way home. Pretty impressive!
