The sunrise this morning turned Mt. Mckinley, Foraker, and Hunter bright pink. It was a good way to start a great day.
This is Denali, Foraker, and Hunter after the sun was up.
There was nearly a foot of snow on the ground but very little overflow. All the tracks are mine. I was testing the snow/ice conditions before I commited by coming to a full stop. When ever I land on a lake in the winter I pop the door open before I stop sliding…just incase I happened to find that thin spot in the ice.
Heading home it was another awesome sunset. I was thoroughly enjoying it, but I was also ready to get on the ground and stretch after nearly 7.5 hours of being airborne.
Looking up the Kashwitna drainage during sunset. You can see where the frost formed on the trees nearer the moisture.
Home sweet home…ready to stretch my legs. You can see Palmer, and the Butte with Pioneer Peak in the backdrop.
