Rob in Alaska - Wrapping it Up with a Float Plane Trip

The KOLR10 trip to Alaska is over. If you've never been to Alaska, it lives up to the term, a once in a lifetime experience, especially by air.
It literally brought tears to your eyes
Ketchikan, Alaska -- The KOLR10 trip to Alaska is over.  If you've never been to Alaska, it lives up to the term, a once in a lifetime experience.

Alaska is by far the biggest state in the U.S.  At 586,000 square miles, it's more than twice the size of Texas.
And, so to have even a chance of understanding the enormity of it all, you've got to see it by air.

And a float plane is the easy option.
My pilot, Randy Sullivan, from Mountain Air Service, takes us to Misty Fjords.

Taking off is a bit bumpier than your average runway.

But once in the air, the views are unbelievable. Lakes, 3,000 feet in the air, leading to massive waterfalls, all coming from snow melt.

Once in the air, you can see mountain goats, dall sheep, and bears. It literally brought tears to your eyes.

And the landing, because it's on water, is so gentle you don't even know you've landed.

A perfect ending to a life-changing trip to Alaska.
