Blue Ridge Express

Recently, I've been waiting on pictures that Randy Cooper took on a recent trip to the New (6/17 & 6/18).  Randy captured some great pictures on my red-point ascent of "Agent Orange" (via top-rope anchor), and some great shots leading Spectre on gear.  In the mean time, I captured some footage on a recent plane ride from NYC to Beckley, WV.  Most of the trip was spent traveling through the Appalachian Mtns. and dodging afternoon thunderstorms (We traveled at 4500 ft and were surrounded by spectacular views).  I'm going to be stationed in Beckley, WV for the next two weeks, which is a 1/2 hr. south of the New, so expect to see some more action from the New River Gorge.

Sorry for the camera stabilization, the plane ride was a little turbulent during this portion of the trip.  The helicopter pictures were taken at Westchester Co. Airport before takeoff.
