Sunday, August 16, 2020:  
Paula's second cousin Chuck Scott took Mark to see Brainerd from the air.
The plane is a Cessna 172M from 1975.  Chuck says he is only a little oler than that!

The Mississippi River is brown at the bottom of the photo. 
For perspective, most rivers are brown because they carry silt from land they flow through.
Gilbert Lake (above) is blue because it is not a river. 

The former paper mill, now an industrial center that generates electricity for Brainerd.

Brainerd and Baxter, MN, as seen from the east.

A closer look at Brainerd.

A great pilot, Chuck has logged over 7000 hours of flying time.
