The view from above





A coworker went flying in a helicopter the other day to check the condition of trout streams in the area. Since Sand Creek is one of our few functional brook trout streams, I knew he would be flying by my house. I have always thought it would be fun to fly over my land at low altitude, just to get a feel for the area and see it from a different perspective. My coworker was nice enough to get some great pictures of my house!

This is looking from the northeast, with the swamp in the foreground. Vinny recently made that trail across the swamp with the help of the four wheeler and some of the planks that used to be my raised garden beds. He has a deer stand over there, and he has used it a couple times during deer season. Still no deer though, but a friend gave us a deer he shot today; it was an extra one for him. I am looking forward to venison in the freezer! And still hoping Vinny gets one.

Try Google Earth. There are some pretty good images there too.

The Google Street View car finally made it to these parts this summer. I am expecting to see pictures of my land on Google Maps soon.

That's cool! I've looked at our house through Google Earth, but a fly-over is much clearer :)

Awesome photo! Really shows how wild your land is.
