FOWChallenge-Chill

~~~~~

~~~~~

chill

an unpleasant feeling of coldness in the atmosphere,
one’s surroundings, or the body.

For the few minutes it took to have this photo taken,

we were all smiles in the 40 below zero room.

However, I think  a few minutes was enough for us.

Especially since we experience 40 above zero

more often than near Zero temperatures.

This team of huskies had just pulled

a four wheel motor bike around a track…

for the tourist watching from the paddler wheeler,

The Discovery II.

 

They could’t get into the river quick

enough to cool down.

While I don’t h ave any photos of them shaking dry,

I have yet to see any working dogs not give themselves

a very hearty shake to dry off after a swim on a hot day.

FOWChallenge-Bargain

For last year’s visit to Canada and Alaska we

flew with Air Canada on a 2 for 1 deal.

Because we only stepped onto

an Air Canada flight in Brisbane

I initially thought the 2 for 1 deal

referred to the Brisbane – Vancouver leg.

While speaking to the travel company

I learned that the 2 for 1 deal applied to all flight sectors. 

So we flew from Melbourne to Brisbane,

Brisbane to Vancouver,

Vancouver  to Victoria and

from Fairbanks to Vancouver

then all the way home to Melbourne…

for what seemed the bargain price of $2,000. 

I was expecting that per person. 

Thank you Air Canada.

The only flight we had to pay for was

our Air Arctic flight to Coldfoot.

Blue…my favourite colour.

Whether it is the blue skies of

Far North Queensland, or…

…flying into the Alaskan wild blue yonder

in our blue plane.

Blues and yellows from all over.

This was new to me.

I was unaware we had coast guard boats, as such,

let alone yellow ones.

 

Air Arctic at Coldfoot airport.

A local tourist train.

Fairbanks airport I think.

My favourite form this set.

Loved the song or The Beatles.

Not so  sure now though.

FOWChallenge-Adventure

~~~~~

adventure
noun
an unusual and exciting, typically hazardous, experience or activity.

This was the start of our…

adventure to Wiseman, Alaska.


We flew over the wilds of Alaska…


…prior to landing at Coldfoot.

From Coldfoot it was a relatively short

coach ride to Wiseman.

 

A small town 63 miles North  of the Arctic Circle. 

Certainly and adventure and as far North

as we have ever been on our planet.
