Wow. What a flight! And a great flight to do on my B-day. I did part of this flight with @United2, who also flew the 172 but had to leave about half way in.
The photos are here!
Cessnas in Alaska!
Successful takeoff from Juneau
Climbing over a beautiful lake
Flying past Haines. There are a bunch of tiny cities along lakes and almost all of them have a ferry that connects them all to Juneau through these lakes.
In Alaska, if you can’t drive, you float, if you can’t float, you fly!
Made it over the mountain pass to find another lake. And the mountains are clearing away ahead, I wonder why
Because that’s the great terrain dropoff. I found a cool article that IF made about that here.
Descending into White horse
Safe landing in YXY! Time to go through customs now.
I hope y’all enjoyed!
