We took in this spectacular view from the plane on the way back from Sun Peaks to Seattle. The North Cascade Mountain range spans the border between British Columbia, Canada and Washington state. It’s 20 minutes of heavenly views from the plane in every direction. The peak in the back is Mt. Baker, at 10,778 ft.
When you’re flying a small airplane, you set a flight plan with U.S. Customs before you take off. Air traffic control keeps very close tabs on small planes crossing over the border, and U.S. Customs officers meet your plane when you land. Captain Raney did a fine job!
