Flightseeing Mt. Baker and Mt. Shuksan in the Winter!

AAI backpacking guide, Jeff Ries, has a hobby that allows him to provide us with some of the most fantastic photos imaginable.  Jeff is a private pilot.

On a recent beautiful winter day, Jeff made a quick tour around Mount Baker and Mount Shuksan in his little plane.  The following photo essay is the result of that flight.
