The weather in Prince Rupert was perfect so a 'bucket list' adventure was booked. The thrill of flying in a Beaver float plane into the wilderness Coast mountains was truly an awesome experience. I love the diversity of mountain composition and to be so up close and personal was nothing less than exhilarating as the plane carved around towering cliffs, jagged peaks, dense forests and glided low over glaciers and emerald lakes.

"Lord, our Lord how majestic is your name in all the earth! 
You have set your glory in the heavens." Psalm 8:1  
"Who has taken count and measured out all earth’s waters in a single, cupped palm
and determined heaven’s expanse with an outstretched hand?
Who has counted out exactly how many grains of dirt are here on earth,
and weighed the mountains and hills on scales?" Isaiah 40:12

Once a glacier

Quotoon Inlet

Coming in for a landing on Quotoon Inlet
We were on the look out for grizzly bears on the sandy delta
but they must have been off in the woods feasting on berries.

We landed right in front of  beautiful, cascading Quotoon waterfall,
 one of the largest on the North Coast.

Whirr, Whirr, and we were up and away again to fly over Prince Rupert

Prince Rupert has the deepest ice free natural harbour in North America.

Calm waters for a ferry today. Tomorrow could be a different story

Thanks to Ken for a smooth, informative and awesome flight.
