A friend of mine is a private pilot. I FINALLY got to go up with him with the 20D and 70-200mm... Got a lot of great shots. Here's one of 'em.

Thanks.

I'm sure we'll be going up more in the future.. This trip was mostly a test to see how well the camera would work with all of the vibration and plexiglass windows. I think it did really well.
I'll post another shot later...

Very nice, MacTek!

If you can afford the time and can get a permit, I highly recommend the stroll to the top!

Be advised it is not simply a "hike in the park".

You should go with someone experienced in snow travel.

Good luck

I wasn't aware you could get a permit now. It's an active volcano at this point. You can see it venting in the first photo. Planes are restricted to 1.5 miles around the mountain.
I'd LOVE to climb it. I know someone who used to go there every couple of years. It's apparently easier to climb when it's snow-covered, since the exterior of the mountain is mostly scree and quite difficult to traverse.

Here's another photo...
This one is more moody... the weather was a bit unpredicatable...

Yes, it is an easier climb in the spring.

And, yes, mtn may be closed to climbing now...

Love the last photo!
