Despite the afore-composed forecast, there has actually been a lot of rain in Haines, Ah well, such is life in "Southeast," as Alaskans call this part of the state. Yesterday Collin went flying right seat in a beautiful Beaver, the latest machine in the Mountain Flying Service fleet. It was a beautiful loop: Haines - Gustavus - Skagway - Haines. Last night, the two of us finally got our grizzly fix: two young bears fishing away under the moonlight at the inlet. There is a fish weir installed, so it's an easy catch for those guys. Wouldn't a photo or two be ideal? I didn't snap any before Collin's fight, and the lighting was too tricky to capture anything valuable with the bears. You'll just have to believe me!
