<< Our Journey North

09/10/17 - Coming Into The Country - Part1

We started our journey at the most peculiar airport. It was right next to the main Anchorage airport, but this airport was full of little planes. A lot of them had wheels and rolled down the highway where they had right of way. Others had floats and had little cut outs and docks so they could just push off like a boat and use the lake for a runway.

We took off, said goodbye to Anchorage, and were soon looking out the windows as the landscape rolled and folded dramatically. As the instruments on board showed, there was terrain ahead, lots of terrain. There was also ice, vast glaciers of ice, and rivers run wild between the mountains. We caught a bit of fall color and a rainbow, but we kept flying east.
