Aerial Photographs are an important part of Timberline Trails, because they give us a birds eye view of important climbing features that would otherwise be impossible to capture from the ground. Recently, my long time climbing partner, Mike Koerner, has acquired a specialized piece of equipment that will enable us to capture far more photos from the air. We believe that this will give you, the visitor, a much better perspective of hiking, backpacking, and climbing areas that you may be interested in. Our plan is to capture images that will show important mountain terrain such as glaciers, passes, basins, and other key elements that make up the great outdoors.
The following is a write up by Mike describing his aircraft that we use to get the aerial photos we use on the site: The airplane used for Timberline Trails aerial photography is a Flight Design CT2K.
The CT2K (and more recent CTSW model) is a German designed Light Sport Aircraft (LSA). The Light Sport designation allows use of less rigorous aircraft and pilot certification standards which result in lower purchase and operating costs.
The Sovereign LORD is my strength; he makes my feet like the feet of a deer, He enables me to go on the heights. Email Sign Up
