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.
