california the beautiful

I went through a bunch of old pictures recently and ran across these photos from a helicopter ride over LA a couple of years back. We flew with Elliott’s uncle from LA over the angeles crest range to lancaster and then followed the 14 back down to the 405. It reminds me why I love california. Even though I was terrified the whole time that I was going to die (the hot weather made for a bumpy ride). There’s just nothing like it.

    I wish I wasn’t deathly terrified of heights because the photo taking opportunities would be incredible like this. Dang.

    kate–I was never afraid of flying before I started spending time in a helicopter. And now I am terrified. I get cold sweats just thinking about it…
