Finally got a chance to get up in a Piper Cub today and take some shots of the changing leaves. Not much near Babbitt, but as we got nearer the North Shore, the Sawtooth Mountains were spectacular.

My ride coming to pick me up:

I love the aerial views. Very cool. These are something we don't get too normally see.

Wow, looks like a fun trip! Lots of color up there. There's more than I saw along the shore.

Wow those are awesome. I was up on the North shore a couple years ago for my birthday and it was awesome. Hopefully I will make it back up there for my birthday one of these years. Such a beautiful place this time of year, and capturing it from the air is so much cooler. Great stuff and thanks for sharing.

Beautiful images, Ken! I was thinking of you while we were prowling the woods yesterday and wondering if you'd made it up. Great additions to the portfolio!

I really like that first shot of the Sawtooth Mountains. That is one photo trip I would never be able to do. Too hard to get good pictures when your eyes are closed and your hands are shaking! grin

Actually it was a very smooth flight except for the one bank and dive he did over my house to get a picture! Stan's a very good pilot. I get sick on the Tilt-a-Whirl but this didn't bother me at all!

Great work Ken, looks like it was a nice day to be aloft. As Yak mentioned you think photography is expensive!

    • Pretty hard to tell. Is this on a TWSP, County or State road? You will need to get a permit from them and build it to their standards if approved. Will you need a culvert? Probably will unless you locate it at a highpoint. Will you have to remove any trees? How much fill is needed? is the ditch deep or shallow? How long do you want it? Hopefully you are not impacting any wetlands... It use to be simple, but now it is much more complicated. Could get spendy...
    • Since my smoker is new for now I throw them in the big wash sinks in the basement with some Dawn and hot water to soak. Then rinse them with more hot water. I'm sure in time once they get more "purplefloyd seasoned". I'll rub them a bit with a grill brush and hit them with a garden hose! 
    • Hello from the NW Angle of Lake of the Woods!

      Here in Minnesota, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s and the Walleyes keep rollin’ in! Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches and crank-baits right along the weed line. Crawlers on a gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 and 26 feet. Jigging has been tough this week with the strong winds, but the Mayflies have finally tapered off!!
       
      Up on the Canadian side, bottom bouncing has been filling the live wells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have seen nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action can currently be had in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing is still sporadic with high 40” class fish being caught from shallow bottom bays or just outside of them. 

      Fish of the Week:
      49" and 46" Muskie
      40" Pike
      At least 10 Walleye over 25" 

      We hope to see you soon! Sunset Lodge
    • Anyone know where I can find it?  Checked a couple grocery stores and even a butcher and nobody has it?  Also what's a decent price if I do find any? 
    • When mine get caked I nuke em on the gas grill for about 15 minutes. easy peasy  
    • I agree with purpleflloyd..........seasoning. I MIGHT use a grill brush twice a year that's it. 
    • Well first off you would probably need a permit but I would think 1000.00 should take care of it   
    • Auuuug, that suks!  Really nice area up there. 
    • Yards lookin' good, boober! 
    • Dishwasher for me if I don't get to them right away like thirdeye.
