Default A flight in to Packwood

My friend Hal_San and I depart Thun Field to test his auto pilot and headed up into the Tatoosh Wilderness to visit the small town of Packwood, just south of Mt. Rainier. A beautiful day in the dreary Northwest.

Just measured it on the Seattle Sectional. The straight line distance is 28 statute miles. The camera is on a wide angle setting.
