Andrea and Aaron are some of the best people I know, and this Saturday, I was able to hook them up and take them for a glorious ride over the Tillamook area. The rocks in the image are right off Maxwell Point with the farthest being Storm Rock.
Took my parents and my little brother flying today. First time reaching 10,000 feet! It was amazing! Here’s a video!
