    Yea, it went down to nothing pretty quick here.

    Took a short flight this afternoon to an area a little northwest of the airport where moose like to winter. There’s a cow moose just left of center in this image.

    I enjoy winter flights looking for game. Mostly elk and moose but sheep and deer too.

    I went to North Little Rock on a much nicer day, but I have to admit I cheated and lounged in the back while Molly built some Cub time.


    Next week Houston!

    Started at the beach earlier this week, then flew really high - for the hell of it - this weekend, then landed a meadow at 9800' that should be under 8' of snow by now. Trying to feel the pain of winter with you guys but mother natures not cooperating on the west coast.

    20 degrees here today, a little wind and a negative density altitude of several thousand feet made for some nice performance.

    You need to get up here for China lake this winter. Performance is at its best below zero.

    Was negative 3500 feet here yesterday. Jumped off the ground but controls were a bit stiffer. I'll prefer the 60 plus they are for casting for this weekend.

    While the truck drivers were gone hauling corn to the mill, and potatoes to the chip plant, Andrew and I made the high level executive decision to chuck our responsibilities, and play hooky for the afternoon. Took 2 of our shop mechanics for a cheeseburger at Tom Fords stomping ground, Nicatous Lodge on Nicatous Lake in downeast Maine. Prob is they arent open this winter, all we found was a guy swinging a hammer not flipping burgers. Off to the north into a little town with a little walk to cheeseburgers.
    22 degrees and no wind seems like a summer day after the last couple weeks. Hang on to your snowplow, its coming tomorrow.

    Have to be fair now. When drivers are all caught up you have to take them to.

    Oh yeah, the lodge changed ownerships they dont rent out any cabins or serve food. If your standing on the lake looking at the lodge, go to the road, hang a right, over the bridge over the river and a couple thousand feet up is a snack shack with awesome food. Not sure if they are open for the sled season yet,

    I should have mentioned that Cinnamon Pass has an elevation of 12,640 feet with the surrounding mountain peaks in the high thirteens with the highest peak to the South of the pass at 14,048. It was fairly calm when I flew through this area with only light turbulence. I would not fly this route in any kind of windy conditions. Make sure you have plenty of altitude before you commit the turn East over the pass out of the canyon that I am flying up in the video. Once over the narrow pass you will have plenty of elevation above the valley floor towards Lake City.Click image for larger version.

    Eddie,

    I've been over those passes many times, the lack of snow in your pics is SCARY for this time of year. My brother lives at the base of Wolf Creek Pass (South Fork Side) and is really nervous what fire season will bring this year with how little snow pack there is 1/4 of the way into the season and beetle kill spruce around...

    Many folks in this area are concerned that this could be a repeat of 2002 when we had a number of large forest fires in this corner of the state due to little moisture. Here are a couple pictures that I took of the South Fork area yesterday. Most of the timber that is in the second shot that looks like living spruce, is actually dead beetle kill spruce.

    February and March are the make break months that we will be paying close attention to.

    We call my Brother the family “Snowflakeoligist”, University of Colorado Snow Science Grad that spent multiple winters on the top of Red Mountain Pass digging snow pits then he started doing avalanche control and Partoling at Wolf Creek in ‘82 and has been living there ever since (even has a entre’ named after him at Kips Grill in Creede, the “Roberto”). He retired 15+ years ago but still averages around 50 days a year and told me at Christmas that he hasn’t ever seen this little snow, I suggested he verify he’s at max insurance coverage and update his bug out-plan.

    Curious if all that beetle-killed spruce could be logged?
    Is it in marketable condition?
    I'm assuming it's on USFS land...
    they would make some money, everyone involved in the logging would make some money,
    and a lot of fodder for future forest fires would be removed.
    Seems like a win-win-win to me.

    I saw a fair amount of logging activity between Lake City and Salide in the high country where most of the trees are beetle-killed. The problem is there are thousands if not millions of acres of dead spruce and lodge-poll pine in Colorado south into New Mexico. The big burn this fall in Montana was in a beetle-kill area.

    It’s only been in the last few years that they have had a commercial grade approved for the spruce used to only see it on siding, they call it “blue stain” its really pretty nice looking. Then you have the market saturation problem with the bugs speading rapidly throughout the west. Plus the use restrictions require the bark and sub strste be striped and burned the same day.

    A few hours exercising the plane during a visit back to SE. Wish I had more time as ski flying conditions were prime. Contemplating relocating the plane out to Unalaska this spring/summer. Anyone have experience Cub'n in the Aleutians? Any recommendations/thoughts about operating out of the Aleutians for leisure?!?!? I know it is a different arena out this way but sure seems like some virgin country and with living here, taking advantage of weather when it presents itself seems reasonable (to me!). Plus, who wants to be without their plane?

    Glad to see water in the river.....We are bad dry. 90+ days without measurable moisture. How do you keep those Oregon Aero seats from smelling like wet dog?
