We got to fly today! When I woke up and looked out the window I was not very optimistic about us making the flight tour today. It was kinda foggy and didn't look much better than yesterday when we got cancelled..... twice. We kept waiting on the cancellation call that never came, so we got in the car and drove to where we were to meet. Still had our doubts but our driver showed up and to the airport we went to board the plane.

Again I'm unable to describe the beauty. We both took dozens of pictures and we would catch a good one once in a while. The pilot was good and gave a good narrative during the flight and answered all of our questions.

It was supposed to be an hour and a half but turned into almost 2 hours. And while Mt. McKinley wasn't perfectly clear all the way to the top when we came around the south side, most of it was visible. And we were happy to have got to make the flight today because the next 10 days are calling for rain.

When we took off we flew right by where we had our home base and I got a picture of it. It seems we attract fellow travelers, that is our motorhome on the left side.

Here is a zoomed in picture of us and all of our followers. Ha. Karen found a church in town and we just had enough time to make the 11 am service.
