Fun fact about the location, There was a 6.5 magnitude earthquake centered 12mi away from 1U7 on March 31st 2020. It was felt all the way in Calgary and was Idaho’s second strongest earthquake topped only by the 6.9 Borah earthquake of 1983.

Yeah some far away feel way different than when it’s right below your feet

Where I was it had died down to a 5.5m earthquake, I do have a little ripple crack in my wall from it.

That’s crazy.

I got a chance to go to redfish lake and the water was freezing.🥶🥶🥶🥶

Very cool, nice pics!

Thanks, I loved the flying.
