Sunday Drive

these are all unaltered iPhone pictures
I got out of the house and took a drive to Appleton to see the world from a new point of view. It was a gray day so the colors didn’t pop the way I like but had their own luminescent beauty.

White Salmon in Fall…. coming soon!

Before you know it Fall Dress will be in style once again! I have been spotting some brilliant fall alpine colors, as well as the full range of green to yellow, orange and red vine maple along highway 141 south of Trout Lake, Washington. I think it will hit hard and fast like every season this year has done.

be prepared to enjoy!

Also if you like Helicopters, check out the fire fighting helicopters in the previous post… I made a calendar for Helitack and to sell

Fire Helicopter Calendar available now!

At the request of some of the Helitack crew at the airbase in Trout Lake (here for the Cascade Creek Fire on Mount Adams) I put together a calendar of Helicopters (and one plane used for Air Attack Platform coordination). These are custom design and I am only making a very limited quantity You can email me at starlisa.black@gmail.com if you want to order one. They are $25.00 each, plus $5 for shipping if you need it mailed, and tax if you are in Washington.

This album of photos represents the pages of this 2013 calendar

Air Support on Wildfires

Trout Lake, Wa has been home for nearly a month to a large Fire Camp and Helitack crew, during the Cascade Creek Fire on Mount Adams, with several Helicopters coming and going. My brother’s house is right behind the airstrip which lodges the Helitack camp, and I enjoy watching these birds of the air coming and going. To us, the noise of the machines is simply telling us we are safe from that fire burning 8 + miles away.

During the Salt Spring Fire of (2005?), the Cold Springs Fire of 2008, the Crofton Ridge Fire of 2009, and now this one in 2012 there were many different Helicopters coming and going. This is a sampling of some of them, and I have many more shots I simply have not gotten around to processing. enjoy!
