Calgary Bound

The weather in Calgary is improving.
To update my charts and Flight Supplement, went to Boundary Bay store.
S-san told me Supplement was much cheaper at Aviation World, close to Vancouver International. I refunded the one I just bought, and headed for CYVR.
There I saved more than $10.
I also found Garmin 296 came down from $2,000 to the current $1,795. Very good sign. I may go for it soon.

Mt. Baker Access (Recci)

The idea of revisiting Mt. Baker came to my mind after Elfin Shelter trip.
Ninja to Glacier Creek Road to see the access.
I turned around 2 km before the trail head, as ice appeared on the steep access road. Surprisingly it's paved most of the way.
a0025444_15204196.jpgIs this part of Mt. Baker? Colfax and Lincoln peak? I'm not sure. At least the direction is right.
a0025444_15221122.jpgThe other side of North Nooksack Valley. Is this Church Mountain? Again I'm not sure. If it is Church, I was once on the top.

This is Douglas Fir, not California's sequoia.

I have powerful climbing tools, seal skins.

To Keep Current

a0025444_12304989.jpg Main Terminal, Bundary Bay Airport.
This has been a mecca of light plane flying since light planes were moved out of Vancouver International Airport.
In a way, the move was right. In 70's we were flying from International, sharing the same runways with Boeing 747's. Those days Boundary was deserted, though it had been a major pilot training facility for the Allied Air Forces.
a0025444_1238111.jpgFlew MJZ from Boundary to Langley. I wanted to have lunch at Adrian's Restaurant. Alas by the time I stood in front of it, it's already time to fly back. As usual, there were so many time consuming things in preparation of any flights; preflighting, etc. Next time I should book plentiful.

Today was 15 knot wind, gusting to 20; turbulant day.
