Convict Canyon - CT heaven - or hell

Recommended Posts

Its across the street from my hangar and an sure fire hit on any scenic ride.

8 miles back you enter at 12,500', cut your motor and manuever in the canyon till your out of altitude and at the pattern for Mammoth Yosemite airport.  Never gets old.

A little different sunrise than mine this morning Ed.  Great picture.  Is the airport somewhere in the valley?  Is it towards the background or foreground of picture?

This could have been shot from downwind (high downwind)  The airport is at the base of this and other canyons.

Looks like BRS territory!

that's for sure with the exception of Lake Dorothy that you can see is pretty big.  It is frozen and snow covered most of the year.  If only I had compound skis for my CT I'd do it :)

Yosemite is on of my favorite places. I use to say it was my favorite, but this fall we did a couple weeks in southern Utah. Both are spectacular. 

I would love to have my plane for a couple of weeks in southern Utah.

Me too, you should go to the Page Fly In?

Yosemite never dissappoints.  Tommorow I'm taking my CT to the Bay Area for a condition inspection so I will get to transit the park twice :)
