One Man's Paradise

Simply beautiful…

“I see Earth!
It is so beautiful.”

Yuri Gagarin


Visiting Lake Minchumina, site of the annual rock skipping contest, stays in my memory…

A place right in the middle of the interior of Alaska, 100 miles from Kantishna. In the distance you can see the Alaska Range. From the plane surrounded by glacial ponds, lush green, flat as a pot.

Raspberries and rose hips.

A few houses scattered around the lake shore.

And a landing strip for B2 bombers.

Three fishermen trying to land a pike…

What a trip.
