So the winner for the high point on any assignment this year had to come over Mountain House. Somewhere two or three thousands feet above to be exact.
Working on a story about the new Questa School we thought it would be a cool idea to grab some views from the air. Pilot Doug Smith donated his time and flew me over the the town in a small homebuilt airplane just barely big enough for the two of us. I spent a bumpy but fun ride photographing the city and trying hard not to bump his hands on the controls.
The low assignment for the year could be a toss up but I think snuggling down to the ground among the tomato vines as a harvester approached has got to the be the lowest point. I remembering wondering if I would be able to hop out of the harvester's path on a knee still sore from a torn meniscus.
