Flying a 172 in the Canadian Rockies

Hiya! Hope everyone is doing well during these apocalypse-movie times.

I wanted to share some of my flying highlights of the year so far to show what this part of the world is like as seen from a 172…

For those who don’t know, I am a private pilot currently training for my CPL and I fly out of CYXC in British Columbia.

Anyways, here are some unedited and rather crooked pictures from the past 2 months:

^The local ski hill in town. “Kimberley Alpine Resort”

^A winter’s sunset with Kimberley Resort hiding in the background

^Southbound on Kootenay Lake just north of the town of Creston

^Fisher Peak (9000ft ASL)

^On the other side of Fisher Peak looking south

^The Steeples mountains south of Fisher
