Views From Under the Wing

Aug 11th, afternoon – Our plane made it back to Hallo Bay to pick us up and, unfortunately, it was time to fly back to  Homer. They sky had cleared and we were able to enjoy these beautiful views looking out under the wing.’


Snow capped mountains……


And rivers that braid……


Across the glacial delta….


Alpine lakes shining sapphire blue.


And glaciers…..with the rocky moraine creating racing stripes down the length of the glacier.


The glacial silt is so fine that it colors the run-off a milky blue-green. This glacier empties into a milky blue lake, which then drains to the sea.
