Speaking of big rock, this ones as big as they come (in Canada).

I love how I can just drop down into Alaska, not talk to a soul on the radio and nobody knows or gives a shit. I present, Disenchantment Bay

Image

And then the Lowell Glacier on the way home, just because I can.

By the way, I think I'm kind of tired of the mountains. Does anybody know who offers a quality "flat land" course I could take so that I can work back east? 8)

Nice pictures guys.
I use to think the same way as tofo. I was a Northern Ontario boy who thought I knew all there was about float flying Then I did some time on the Central BC coast. You guys who are safely doing the Mountain/Ocean thing day in and day out have my back

The hardest thing about flying is knowing when to say no


After over a half a century of flying no one ever died because of my decision not to fly.

I think I was still thinking of the Strippers in Edmonton, and wishing that thing was presurized for the hangover.

You guys are making me seriously homesick for the back country of Canada. I really hope you guys appreciate it and "see it" every day you go flying. It won't last forever and you are truly lucky to be flying in such stunning geography.

Keep em coming.
