A very dear Mother was so kind to treat her son and girlfriend to an amazing adventure in Alaska. Sky Trekking Alaska flew Courtney and Scott from Lake Lucille in Wasilla through Prince William Sound on the most gorgeous day ! We flew over snow capped mountains, expansive glaciers and sights that few will ever see. Landing in the SW district of PWS the destination was the Talvi’s Port Ashton Lodge where Courtney and Scott enjoyed some water activities time using inflatable kayaks from naturerated.com, as well as hiking, and wilderness peace along with some of the best meals ever prepared by Miss Lia. Day tow Sky Trekking Alaska returned for a PWS adventure to see and experience glaciers up close and personal. Which we did. Tiger glacier was where we drawn too. The weather there was nice and calm with overcast skies and no precipitation. We saw many harbor seals who were very curious and followed Courtney and Scott along the beach as they hiked towards the glacier’s face. Lori stayed with the airplane in case of a large calving event with which she would need to move the airplane off the beach during the tidal surge. Cilla poked around to discover animal tracks and to prepare and assist Lori with Lia’s fabulous lunch for all of us. Pictures were taken, sounds were heard and we all enjoyed the surreal nature surrounding us. Innocently we enjoyued the calving of the glacier until a giant chunk calveing into the bay. Because the bay was so narrow the echo from this calving ice created a giant surge. As it turned out Lori moved the plane while the guests and Cilla remained on the beach out of the way of the crashing waves. The moral to the story EAT THE HOT BANANA BREAD FIRST. Before the giant calving event we dined leisurely on yummy homemade halibut sandwiches, snap peas, oatmeal raison cookies and HOT out of the oven banana bread prepared by Miss Lia Talvi. It was so good, not on Lori’s diet but she loved every bite of the TWO pieces she ate before having to depart the beach! TTL for an incredible day in Wild Alaska with special people……
Guide Cilla Robbins praises God for his amazing creations in Prince WIlliam Sound Alaska at Tiger glacier.
Lake George is probably one of our all time favorite places to show people glaciers, paddle in a canoe amongst giant icebergs, hike glacial moraine and enjoy a picnic at one of the most beautiful places on earth. It truly is God’s county here. These 3 gentlemen had a great time with pilot/guide Lori Egge on a sunny afternoon in 2011. Visiting from the 48 states on a work trip to Alaska each year these fine fellows joined us for glacier fun, floatplane flying and and afternoon of being in the wilderness. They loved that they could spend an afternoon and really get the feel for what it’s like to be ALIVE IN THE ALASKAN WILDERNESS! Oh so amazing.
