Good wood - another awesome log cabin, this one was designed by Manhattan studio JacobsChang in upstate New York and built on a shoestring. Love the contrast between the blackened timber exterior and the cool, calming, minimalist white interior.
Cabin above Chamonix, France on the Mont Blanc Massif. The cabin is a refuge and farm, basically open in the summer months to take care of hikers and provide food/coffee for hikers and runners in the alps.
As the sun rises, our Global Hawk is prepped for flight at Armstrong Flight Research Center on Edwards Air Force Base in California. Pre-dawn flights of our Global Hawk help beat hot summer days in Southern California. Electronic components, which are cooled by fuel onboard, only function within temperature limitations, so testing usually ceases by midday, as fuel and onboard computers become too hot to operate.
The Global Hawk unmanned aircraft is used for high-altitude, long-duration Earth science missions. The ability of the Global Hawk to autonomously fly long distances, remain aloft for extended periods of time and carry large payloads brings a new capability to the science community for measuring, monitoring and observing remote locations of Earth not feasible or practical with piloted aircraft, most other robotic or remotely operated aircraft, or space satellites.
The Pacific Northwest is a place you can spend months exploring and still not see everything there is to see. The plane is fueled, bags are packed, batteries are charged and now the adventure begins. Alder Trees, Salmonberries, Bald Eagles, and fishing for Rainbow Trout mix together for a PNW recipe. @goalzero
