The splendor of Big Sky Country

Recommended Posts

A great route in Xplane11 or P3DV4, out of Glacier Intl headed towards the Continental Divide and Glacier park.  I drove to Glacier from Phoenix in 2013 and enjoyed the vistas so much, my only other time thru there was inbound from Lethbridge Alberta, and Glacier was clouded over so I could see nothing of its majestic peaks.  It is what I call, along with North Cascades national park further west in Washington State, America's Alps, followed by the peaks towering over Owens Valley in California.  All three mountain sceneries, along with Jackson Hole, are wonderful for VFR flight.  I was told of a great addon from SimHeaven which makes Xplane11's forests denser and much more realistic, found here:

Beautiful shots of the mountains! I also just found the SimHeaven dense forests and it really helps the forests look more natural.

Yes, I was really awestruck when I installed them, I was not expecting such an increase in realism, now it does not look like the forests have been swept clean by a volcanic eruption, lol...
