“The more one does and sees and feels, the more one is able to do, and the more genuine may be one’s appreciation of fundamental things like home, and love, and understanding companionship.” Amelia Earhart
On December 10th, 2011 John and I flew from KAPA to KTEX, the highest commercial airport in the country. With gorgeous bright blue skies, calm winds and the Cirrus SR22, we flew South West to my favorite town. I took these photos with my Nikon D200 from the front seat of the plane. These photos do not even begin to capture what it feels like to fly this route… not only are the views jaw-droppingly amazing, but you really get the feeling of being in the wild, surrounded by 14,000 foot peaks, rugged terrain and the sheer beauty of Colorado.
