So, since I have imgur figured out, and head to Alaska again in a few weeks, here's a photo journey from last year.  I'll post this year's when we return.

 

Take off:

 

PC-12, my favorite aircraft in the world to travel in.

Pilot is gonna land on that postage stamp.

First fish of the trip.  Took me into my backing in seconds, and my reel handle promptly fell off of a brand-new reel.  Hand to hand-line this one in, took the better part of a half-hour to bring it to net.  Sternly worded emails and voicemails exchanged with the manufacturer.  This is why you have backups....

Dinner:

Hareballs and intruders in just about any color worked well

We hit what was our pound limit on day 2.5, so went exploring for dolly's and whatever else.

Very nice set of pictures.  Memories for a lifetime, but you're going again ... good luck this year.
