The view: A morning flight over the Cascade Range in Oregon, east of Eugene
The pilot: Eric Benjaminson
The photographer: Eric Benjaminson
The aircraft: 1958 Cessna 182A, N5900B
The mission: A flight from Creswell, OR (77S), to Sunriver, OR (S21)
The memory: I took an early morning summer flight across the Cascades in Oregon on a perfect morning. Unlimited visibility, no wind, an almost eerie lack of any sign of civilization. As I neared the middle of the mountain range, I saw this stunning lineup of (from the left) Mt. Jefferson, Three-Fingered Jack, Mt. Washington, and two of the Three Sisters. A timeless moment that signals the best of the flying experience.
