Kelley first called me this summer, she is from Washington DC and spends most of her time in the Pentagon. She met my Dad this summer at some health care meeting in Anchorage. My Dad told her to give me a call because I would show her some amazing scenery. We went on a flight, then we landed and hiked around on a glacier. Then we landed and picked up some rocks for the fireplace I am building in my house. We had a great time exploring for a couple of hours that day.
Kelley was back in Anchorage this week and booked another flight/hike with me. So we flew up the Knik this afternoon and landed at the toe of one of the numerous glaciers. there were a couple of inches of snow on the ground so we drug the strip a couple of times to check the condition, and make sure we could get stopped on the snowy 400′ strip. After landing we hiked around on this mostly-frozen glacial lake and climbed around on the icebergs. OK, OK I know it looks a little cold, but it was beautiful, and just think, nobody has ever stood, nor will anybody ever stand again were she is standing. It was truly a unique day and we had a ball running around on the ice. Kelley even made a killer snow angel on a glacial lake in the Chugach Mts. How many people have done that…. I mean really, how many ? Life’s short, enjoy it.
