Very cool! I lived in Alaska for five years and did a lot of flying around that area. Military and civilian. Your pictures are great but don't do the beauty of Alaska any justice! Everybody just needs to go and see it for themselves.

Mike,
I was playing with our tracker the day we met Tobin. Good times!





I am sure you know your territory by heart.











As soon as I get there we will repeat the tour

John I just discovered the feature. Cool stuff. Now sifting through my FF logs. Some profiles are really surprising.

Default Wow!

Vlad, very impressive!!!! Finding Cooper Landing on the front page got my attention.

Even looks like winter, not exactly the green look we witnessed. Very, very impressive.

Looking forward to seeing more of your adventures for sure!

Yes, kind'a know this area very well, winter is my favorite time to fly it. Mountain biked huge chunks as well. Lots of trails to ride.

My daughter and I flew it just at sunset in Sept., saw a huge brown bear where we turned towards the lake and the rainbow. Was first time for her to see the Harding Ice Field. She was impressed.

Looking ahead to the next visit. Everything on track to head your way first. Decided will need to make it to Kill Devil Hill after stop at Carlisle Barracks.

Best regards,
Mike Bauer
