I’m sitting in Aspen, Colorado when I get a phone call from my company.. “Hey Mike, we got another change for ya! Want to go to Alaska??!!!” “Heck yeah” I replied and so began my quest to go to my 49th State, ALASKA! Well, I flew the aircraft to Van Nuys, CA and the next day I took some folks up to Ketchikan, Alaska! I found out when I landed there that Ketchikan is known as Alaska’s “First City”. That’s because it is the southernmost city in the state, hence the name! What a beautiful place to visit and we only got to stay an hour before we flew back to Portland, Oregon! But who knows, maybe I’ll get back again someday. For today though, I’m including pictures of my flight into that very scenic visit.
