On a recent trip to Anchorage, Alaska I decided to rent a little 4 passenger air plane. I decided to fly up to Mt. McKinley. I flew on one of the few days out of the year that enabled me to fly completely around the mountain. This is a view from the co-pilot seat, where I was sitting. Following the glacier through the gorge, I ascended to around 11,000 feet to pass over the ridge leading to the Northern side of the mountain. It was as if I could reach out and touch the rocky slope.
