Winter Caribou

Recommended Posts

I'm on a mission to the snow country in Airhauler, Christmas tree hauling from the sierras back to Napa...seems like a good time to grab some Screenshot Competition pics.

But I'm nearer to the coast and no snow in sight from 2O3-Angwin Parret: Departure 20 minutes before dawn. It's a challenge parking a Caribou at Angwin, but getting it in and out of this little strip is a cinch.

The Sun pokes up quickly as I climb to greet it, and I enjoy the sight of the last of the night lights.

I've arrived at the foothills, already dusted well with powder after some recent rain...errr..snow at these elevations.

And a tempting canyon looms ahead...thankfully cargo damage isn't a factor, though AH2 keeps reminding me about my bank angle...A. I'm deadheading to pick up Christmas trees, and B. Cargo damage isn't even modeled yet in AH2...so fun ahead!

And leaving the canyon into a very well powdered valley. My destination is just 8 miles away, 4000 feet up, and around a bend...basically, follow that road.

Still following that road, but a bit closer...

Performing/trying out a 1 point "Wheelbarrow" touch and go for the 4 or 5 folks not paying attention at this tiny strip...then the fun is over and back to Cargo work.

Cheers, thanks for looking.
