I flew up to the Alaska Range today with 400 pounds of groceries for a mountaineering team. This photo only shows the blue sky, but immediately behind loomed dark clouds brought by a hot afternoon and unstable air. This is an annual trip for me, and in the past I have been able to do this on wheel skis. This year the snow was so thin in the Alaska Range, that I was easily able to do it on tires. I only flew 6.5 hours today so it was nice to have some time off this evening to hang out with my girls, do maintenance on the plane, and eat a big steak.
