How do I get down there?!!!" Pete struggled for a bit trying to figure out what Ruby was doing
But then he got it . . . . . . but we had to leave to keep ahead of the thunderhead closing in.

Pete's view . . .
Ruby roams . . . . . . by a quirk of atmospherics, the skyscrapers of Calgary, a couple of rectangles just on the horizon, could be seen above Ruby and slightly to the left, even though they're about 100 km in the distance.
