Taking off out of Klamath Falls we enjoyed this view of the lake with Shasta in the distance.

Just to the right of that pic was this marshy area with wonderful colors and textures.

A few minutes later we got a fresh look at Crater Lake, and like so many other places it was so different each time we’ve flown past.

To the right of that small volcanic island in the above pic, a tiny spire-crested islet appeared making this flight different from our past ones as it caught our eye.

Nearby another peak had an unusual feature. Do you see a “gorilla face” in the rock, looking off to our right?

We have sisters, and we think warmly of them when passing the Sisters.

Like our sisters, they’re all beautiful to us and each is quite different. 🙂

I don’t recall now which sister harbored this glacial lake, but its angular beauty and turquoise water apparently attracts hikers on the trail.

Before long we were passing Mt. Hood and starting to dodge the clouds dancing with the peak, on our path to Renton.

As we had seen on radar and satellite, there were big openings in the clouds where we could safely descend for our final approach to Renton.
