One Man's Paradise

The view from above…

“A desk is a dangerous place
from which to view the world.”

John le Carré

Last week I had the privilege to be on a flightseeing tour with Mountain Flying Services, seeing the beautiful Chilkat Mountains and Glacier Bay National Park from above. Another picture perfect day in Southeast Alaska. On the way back to Haines we crossed the delta of the Chilkat River feeding into the Upper Lynn Canal. At low tide a maze of small channels became visible, finding their way into the ocean.

On this day, sitting in a small plane, was the perfect place to view the world.
