We flew from Medford Oregon to McMinnville Oregon. It could have been a short uneventful flight but it was cloudy and the cloud cover was so much fun.
Early morning sunrise.
Good morning sun.
Scenery between Medford and McMinnville.
Ahead I could see very low cloud cover. Naturally I cooed "ohhh... how pretty...".
The wispy clouds and trees looked like something from a fairy tale.
Oregon trees peeking out from the clouds.
The valleys were covered with clouds.
We could see the clouds moving up and over the mountains.
We dropped through a hole in the clouds to look underneath and came back up through the same hole. The clouds were too low to see anything.
We landed on a mountain top for a moment.
A look back at where we'd just landed, the clouds were coming up and over the mountain like giant fingers reaching up and over the trees and mountains.
The wispy clouds continued to get thicker. This was actually a bad thing for flying but I was enjoying the scenery way too much to be worried.
I saw about a half dozen of these small round rainbows in the clouds.
Ah, now we can see McMinnville.
There are a lot of farms in McMinnville, it was very pretty country.
Arriving at the McMinnville airport. The people at the FBO were very friendly, I'd highly recommend stopping by to say "Hi!" if you have the chance.
