Renae came down and met me in Georgia to fly back with together. It was another amazing adventure. We saw some old friends and met many great people along the way. We stayed a couple nights in Lewistown, Montana waiting for some strong mountain winds to lay down. They had a huge hanger that was all wooden rafter construction where we could hide from the thunderstorms. The building was an incredible feat of engineering. From there we flew to Lynden, Washington to stage for our nonstop flight over Canada the next morning. The town was very friendly. One of the local pilots gave us some useful tips for easily navigating the Vancouver airspace, which was much appreciated. The next day we had the perfect weather for our 5.3 hour leg to Ketchikan, Ak. We had been watching the weather up the coast over the prior two weeks and this was the first good weather window on the day we were flying that coastal route. We saw it as clear a gift of our Heavenly Father.
The mountains and glaciers were spectacular! We made it from Washington to Willow, Ak all in the same day. It was an epic flight.
In His hand are the depths of the earth, and the mountain peaks belong to Him. The sea is His, for He made it, and His hands formed the dry land. Psalm 95:4,5
