It’s amazing how the summer fly’s by. It’s August 1st today, which means hunting season is just around the corner. This time next week we will be hauling sheep hunters into the Chugach and Talkeetna mountains. This time next month and the leaves on the trees will be yellow and falling. I love this time of year because it’s still summer, but you can feel the change in the air.
The last couple of days have been beautiful. Yesterday my brother and I flew around in the Chugach all afternoon landing in various places and thoroughly enjoying each minute. We have been busy flying for the gold mine, and doing NOLS re-rations. This afternoon we flew 15 people off of an strip using the super cubs. Then we grilled up some salmon and reindeer sausage for dinner. I do love Alaskan summers and all the cool people we get to meet.
