Somewhere close to the highest point in the Lower 48....the Mountain Banshee finds a home!

Is that some where near pikes peak? A far cry from Florida scenery. I like it.

Beautiful shot Paul! Did you use a Todd's canopy on your plane? How do you like the tint?

Now Turbo, we all know you put more traveling hours on your machines than anybody, but we need to get you off the east coast and west of the Mississippi sometime! California's Sierra Nevada is the home of Mt. Whitney, highest point in the lower 48.

It is a Todd's "Tall Man" RV-3 canopy, and while the tint sometimes looks pretty dark in pictures, you don't notice it from the inside, and it does seem to keep some of the solar heat out (good in summer, not so good in winter). Overall, we like it.

For those that do not know about Mt Whitney, use this link.
