I teared up in the plane. After what felt like a tidal wave of emotion dealing with logistics, weather, lack of sleep, gas flying out of the wing upon takeoff and the fear that something would inevitably go wrong at the last second I just felt this incredible release of emotion when we finally got there. It was real, and more beautiful than I could have imagined. Flying over some of the roughest seas on the planet during an incredibly calm and perfect day we emerged through a massive hole in the clouds to this. Ground control said it was the best weather window in 10 years. Pictured Mt. Herbert with the most active volcano in the Aleutian Chain Mt Cleveland in the background.
