I’m gonna miss flying these machines. Down to 9 flights left, although I might pick up a few more in November.
Retiring? Or new airframes?
I’m chronologically challenged according to the FAA.
Ah. Congrats or condolences, as appropriate. (I'm guessing a bit of both.)

The larger photo reminds me of Georgia O'Keefe's art. Those are fabulous!

Cool!

When you've toured a bunch of palaces in Europe, they start to blend together. But two that stand out for me are Versailles and Catherine Palace in St. Petersburg.

Thanks for posting.

Considering the season my first reaction was: how did the ice form such a pretty tunnel :lol:

How done? I guess a GoPro on a surf board.

The Athabasca is the most-visited glacier in North America. Located in Canada’s Jasper National Park, it’s one of the six ‘toes’ of the Columbia Icefield, a natural feature of the Canadian Rockies. The Athabasca has receded by nearly a mile in the past 125 years, losing about 16 feet of ice each year. And that's not all that's moving in the Columbia Icefield—there's also an icefall that travels downslope (the way a waterfall would) between 50 and 400 feet per year.

Most who visit hike up to the edge of the glacier. Some, with the right gear and permits, hike on the Athabasca itself. And in the case of our photo today, a select few climb some of the Athabasca’s ice walls. That’s the aurora borealis in the background. But you don’t need to climb a glacier to appreciate that.

Awesome is a great word for those!

They are all great, but the one that interested me the most is the second from the last, the nine kings. I wish they had named them all.
