Winter has arrived here in Alaska.
-9 degrees in Iliamna this morning.
We struggled with the float plane on the last 3 flights of the season yesterday.
Wading in water when it is that cold is brutal.
The bears are heading into their dens and the caribou are at the tail end of the rutting season. I even saw one bull caribou that had shed one of his antlers.
Yes winter is here!!
Yesterday After we got everyone out of the bush it was off to the big city of Anchorage. at the lake hood maintenance shop the lake was freezing. They quickly pulled the plane out of the water removed the floats and put it on wheels. less than 10 hours later Lake Hood was completely frozen over.
Now that the plane is on wheels so we can return to the lodge at Iliamna.
