Glacier Bay Flightseeing from Skagway

We flew up the McBride Glacier and through the Takhinsha Mountains to the Tsirku and Takhin Rivers on the way back to Skagway. Away from the sea, the dramatic glacier-studded peaks seem to go on forever. This is country that was virtually unknown until aircraft arrived in Alaska - even Native Americans and prospectors saw no reason to attempt to penetrate the wall of rock and ice. I feel honoured to be among the very few people who have ever seen this sight.
