Talk about bad luck

I know a few of you was wondering why I haven't posted in awhile. I was holding off to post tonight from my remote cabin. Well, I didn't make it. About 11am this morning I drove down to my friends house to load up and head out.

We loaded the plane up and I got more excited  as I boarded. We taxied out and got into takeoff position and away we go, smile on my face.  As we took off, I noticed something wrong, it was to slow. As we straightened out, Randy banked left and headed back to the lake, when he started descending, I knew something was wrong. We landed and taxied back to the house. Randy said it was a slow takeoff and when we were up, he couldn't get over 2500 rpms. So, we abandoned the trip so he can get a mechanic to fix it.

So, I came back home, unloaded the car and wait for the call. We had a beautiful day to fly and got sacked. Hopefully, we will be able to go in a day or two. That's it. I will see if I can come up with something in the meantime.

Take care

Trip to top of Hatchers Pass

Saturday, I decided to take a ride to top of Hatchers Pass from Willow. Round trip was 37 miles but, it took 3hrs. 20min. because of the road condition. There were a few holes that almost ate my car. LOL Took these on the way up.

This is an old mine shaft halfway up the mountain, from the 1800's
These two slash shots is the road going up the mountain
The whole road got a bit scary,  No guard rails and plenty of pot holes.

Finally made it to Summit Lake on top

People hiking a very narrow trail to the mountain top
At the top.
this is the road below

A small Falls on the way back.

Well, that was pretty much the trip and on the way back, I saw quite a few people berry picking which reminds me, I need to get out and do some berry picking myself. Our really nice sunny weather has gone as of this morning, RAIN. So, I will work on retrieving my past lodge photos. Enjoy and take care.
