A Beaver and some Cessnas

Postby dogsbody » Wed Apr 01, 2009 12:45 am

I brought this over from the old site.

" I took these yesterday afternoon, down at the Snye, near the confluence of the Clearwater and Athabaska rivers. It's about a mile, as the crow flies, from my front door. "

Hi Chris,

You lucky, lucky man!!!

What I'd give to walk along THAT pathway and see those, even though they are floatplanes (!)

Oh well, one day! ;)

Cheers,

Bryan

Nice to see that Bryan wants to see floatplanes. I think and hope that we will eventually get him addicted.

As soon as all the ice is out of the river and the planes are back in operation, I'll cruise down to see what's there.

Right now, it's snowing. I hope not too much. All the winter's accumulation has already melted, but there have been a few squals since about 03:00 hrs.

I know how you feel. In the Autumn, I miss my native Nova Scotia. The leaves change from green to the beautiful reds, yellows and gold, and it lasts from September well into October.

Up here, the leaves turn a piss-burnt yellow, then fall off after two weeks. That's when the cold and snow start.

Thank the Deities for beer!
