Takeoff from Lake Hood Base
First View of Denali
South Peak (20,310 ft) highest point in North America
A glacial lake we can land on?
It's Lake Chelatna, Angel tells us
After a smooth safe landing
Angel, our pilot
Two Artic Terns came to welcome us!
Until we got too close to their nest...
and they chased us away!
There is even a Lodge and cabins on the lake...
fly in only or snowmobile or dogsled in the winter
