Great Day For A Flight!

Click on the image below to watch the video (about 1 minute in length). My wife and I took our dog for a walk in the Tahoe Meadows above Lake Tahoe (about 8,500 feet elevation) – (see the Flickr Set of the photos and more videos HERE) We decided to stop in the parking lot to check out the view on the Slide Mountain side of the Mount Rose Ski Area on our way back to our house in Reno, Nevada, when we came across a group of pilots launching and landing. Some were taking off from the peak above and landing in the parking lot, others were launching from the parking lot and landing in the valley below by Washoe Lake. Note the yappy dog nipping at the pilot’s heels as he is taking off. Enjoy!

Learning is messy!

  1. Hi Mr. Crosby, I really enjoyed your video from the Mount Rose Ski Area, but I could never do any launching, it’s to scary for me. I have never been to Reno, Nevada, but it is beautiful.
    I agree with your post on making arts education a “Core Subject”, all students should learn art.

  2. Hello Mr. Crosby, my name is Jenna Barnes. I am a student at the University of South Alabama. I absolutely loved this video. The view is gorgeous. I think the dogs barking at the pilot’s heels is so cute. This is amazing. I would absolutely love to do this. I’ve never been to Nevada, but I am a huge vacation person. This is now on my list to see. Thank you for sharing!
