Prince of Wales

We had a great week on Prince of Wales Island–full of bats at night and exploring the Island (and entertaining Torsten) during the day. Check out the whole trip at http://talus-and-heavner.com/200607POW/

Glacier Bay Flightseeing

Dave, Carrie, Torsten, and Matt went for a flight seeing trip to check out Glacier Bay National Park.  As usual, Dave’s excellent piloting was a great way to see Southeast Alaska from above.  The park overflight was amazing–to see Muir Glacier, both arms of the Park, and the icefields and mountains leading up to Mt. Fairweather.  Check out the photo highlights–or if you really want to see all the photos, they are available as well.

Dave on the 4th

Dave, Abbey, Matt, Carrie, and Torsten all met up for the Juneau 4th Parade. After the great parade we went up and walked the dogs on Perseverance Trail. What great times!

Dave & Matt’s Excellent Adventure

Dave Smith flew his Beechcraft Baron twin engine plane from Los Alamos to Aspen, CO and picked up Matt.  We then flew to Juneau (with stops in Boise, Hoquiam, and Ketchikan).  Flying by a smoking Mt. St. Helen’s was one highlight.  The whole flight was great, but the best part was flying the US/Canadian border over the icefield as we went from Ketchikan to Juneau.  Check out some of the highlight photos.
