Mount Cook
Pilatus Porter airplane at the Plateau Hut, the pre-landslide Mount Cook in the background. I was proud to have barfed in that plane. I was doing sound from behind the back-most seat. I could not look out as we dove and circled to get a look at the summit. It can be really alarming to see
how fast a barf bag fills up.

Mount Tasman
Seracs on Mount Tasman from the Plateau Glacier. It was not long after this trip that we decided to call our company Serac Adventure Films. If we only knew how many we would get to know and hate...
