The Cascades By Airplane

The American Alpine Institute has a couple of aviators on staff. Jeremy Ellison is in the process of becoming a commercial helicopter pilot. Aiden Loehr moonlights as a pilot that delivers new planes to faraway buyers and Jeff Reis shares a small plane with a couple of friends.

On May 29th, Jeff took his small plane on a tour of the Cascades. Following is a photo essay from that flight:
