Great view out the front of the plane as we flew up the gorge of the Ruth Glacier. I was able to sit in the front. I hadn't been in a single engine airplane in years (more then I care to admit.) It was great fun, especially sitting up front in the co-pilot seat with the incredible view. Yes we did turn on time.
We landed on a lake on the back side of the Ruth Glacier. The pilot said that this is one of very few times that he has ever landed on this lake. The weather was perfect and the water level was up several feet in the past week giving the pilot confidence that there were not an submerged bolders to hit. The landing was incredibly smoth, I had to look down to tell that we were on the water. We spent a few mintes wandering around, taking pictures, picking up rocks and stretching our wings. Then it was back in to the air and back to Anchorage. I want to go bear viewing the next trip.
