Phyllis was a bit nervous at the prospect of the tiny plane and the water landings...


And Pete was nothing but happy to be there!


As we flew to the Lodge all the vista were glorious - especially the glaciers.


Along the Taku River the bogs were getting their fall color.

Safe landing and happy to be there...

At the lodge we had what we felt was the BEST tour meal we ever had... grilled salmon, home made breads....

The bear warning asked us not to feed or entice the bears... of course we did not actually SEE a bear while at the lodge... but it was interesting to think about. When out on the trails we were advised to make lots of noise, talk, whistle or whatever - to give any bears the chance to slip quietly into the woods. The trails had plenty of evidence that the bears had been there, feasting on the ripe wild berries.

So tranquil!
