A Surprise Helicoptor Ride!!

Last week while Tim's sister and his mother were here visiting at the lodge the helicoptor pilot who transfers and drops all the mining exploration crews
into the mountains offered to give us an ariel view of the lake and the lodge.
Doug has been here for nearly two months so DH and I got to know him a bit,
but we were still surprised at his offer. However, it didn't take long for us to
say "yes"!
It had been raining, so the mountains aren't as bright as one would expect
them to be. But it was so thrilling to be riding right next to these lush masses
of rock.
This is the aerial view of  how Kluane Lake appears in front of the lodge.
It's so hard to describe just how vast and uninhabited this land is. One could
truly squat out here and never be discovered! Not that I'm considering that.
I'm just counting the days until I can get back to my beloved home, ladies.
This was just one of the high-lites of  the families visit so if you can hang
in there I'll be back in a day or two with more photos from Silver City and
our trip to Skagway.


  1. Wow! What a gorgeous view! How exciting that you got to go on this ride. That was very nice of him to offer to take you.
