I was there three years ago myself; I got to channel my Ansel Adams in a serious way. Anyway, I don't have a cookie or anything to give you for the correct answer, unfortunately, but I do have the rest of the arrival series on-hand.
It's hard to miss those mountains. I figured you were at Jackson. I have the Orbx region and have ripped around over there a bunch.
In real, I've been through there a few times on a motorcycle headed to Sturgis. I have to say a pretty rad place. I would like to go back and lamp out for a while, instead of rolling through.
Actually, on one of those trips, I met the guy that owns the DC3 that runs cargo out to Catalina Island. I think he said he's based in Long Beach. We stopped at his house in Salt Lake for a party on the way. I didn't know that at the party, but, I talked to him about it in Jackson Hole. He also has a Widgeon [at the time]. I remember he was saying how much work it is to rinse it after you splash it in the salt water. Anyway, I digress.
Thanks for sharing. Great shots and I love the idea of guess where...
Yeap! That says it. Beautiful, quiet and good energy. There are so many good spots like that across the country. At least on my trip. And, in the most unexpected areas also. I still have a vision of this one spot and I have no idea where it was. It was like a dream.Scav wrote: What an amazing story! I think GTNP really captured something in my heart when I was there. It was VERY peaceful and quiet in the park, just standing at one of the many roadside stops and just staring at it all. The only sound that could be heard was the wind whispering through the air. Temperatures were moderate and the sun wasn't too bad -

I left my home state as a human and returned as a lobster.
I'm pretty sure I've done that plenty of times.

This was actually kinda fun -- though it's going to be hard going forward staying away from the really prominent landmarks in the world without a) making it too easy, and b) making it too hard in the same breath. Taking the Cherokee out there was a real treat as well -- this thing can get out of its own way and has gobs of lift -- until it stops flying, that is.
One hope at a time. Where ever the sim-wind takes you. Have fun.
