From the landing strip at 4500', behold Russell Glacier spilling rocky ice into the gravely expanse of the White River bar. Exploring the alpine terrain, views of Hole in the Wall Glacier, icy University Range (16,421’) and grazing caribou call you in all directions.
We had a truly spectacular visit to Alaska but the highlight of our vacation was certainly our week-long Chitistone Backpack (ing trip). The flights in and out were awesome; we have great photos along with fond memories of the flights with Wrangell Mountain Air. Thanks again for getting us in and out safely and with good humor and conversation. We hope to fly with you again on our next Alaskan trip. .
