Alaska: Flightseeing Over Denali

Embed

  1. Final day of the trip so what did I do before flying home? Jumped in the car  at the crack of dawn and road tripped up to Talkeetna (a cute little town that's about halfway between Anchorage and Denali National Park) with one goal in mind -- go flightseeing  over Denali! Here's my ride. #BrownGirlsFly. #BGFinAlaska.

  2. Got to sit in the cockpit with the pilot. It never hurts to ask and the view was everything! #BrownGirlsFly ready for takeoff. #BGFInAlaska.

  3. Lush landscapes near Talkeetna on the way up to Denali. #BrownGirlsFly the best window seat of all. #BGFinAlaska.

  4. What a difference a few minutes make. We are flying along the Alaska Range. #BrownGirlsFly. Cockpit views. #BGFinAlaska.

  5. Do you see those turquoise patches? Even from 15,000 feet they were refreshing pops of color shining through the sea of white snow.  But what are they exactly? Ice! When ice is packed down under layers of snow and more ice, the air is eventually compressed out of it and it looks blue. It's the reason glaciers often look light blue. But I never ever expected to see such a deep aquamarine color at Denali. #BrownGirlsFly in awe of nature. #BGFinAlaska.

  6. Coming in for a landing. What a phenomenal two hours! I'm ready to go back up again! #BrownGirlsFly in the cockpit. #BGFinAlaska.

  7. Our little red plane soared through the air like an eagle. It was so beautiful and so peaceful that photos could not fully convey the experience. I hope this video gives you a sense of it. #BrownGirlsFly in the co-pilots seat. #BGFinAlaska.
