Wasatch Plane Ride - Lone Peak

Views from a six passenger single propeller plane.

Wasatch Mountains, Salt Lake City, Provo, Utah

It was a perfect day for a plane ride, the leaves were bright reds and yellows, and the sun made them even brighter as it set.
My brazilian friend, Raphael Gomez flew the plane with a little guidance by the plane's owner, George.
I took about 280 pictures. There were so many good informative pictures that I had to break this session up into different groups.
