Scurlock has photographed mountains and glaciers from the air for the past 15 years and he’ll show a selection of his favorite images and share the stories behind them. Enjoy stunning views of the places we usually see only from the vantage point of our skis or hiking boots: the North Cascades, the Cascade Range in Washington and Oregon, the southern Coast Mountains of British Columbia, the Rockies of Canada and the US, the Columbia/Purcell mountains of BC and the Coast Mountains of Northwest British Columbia/Southeast Alaska. The plane he uses on these excursions? One he built himself from a kit!
