Flight From Anchorage to Bethel

Greg went on a flight from Anchorage to Bethel with Boris to pick up a float plane, and bring it back to the company the Boris flies for during the summer.

Greg described the scenery exactly what he thought it would look like. This is what you see when you fly to Bethel, but Greg got to be closer in the float plane.

Hey where's the mountains....Near Bethel. Turns into lakes.

Up the Tubungaluk River

It looked like the Alaska State Troopers got to the dock before us, as this is what we came to when we arrived to launch our boat. Only, where was the trooper. His car was running, windows rolled down, guns exposed. He came in about 20 minutes later from the main river saying he didn't think anyone would be coming to launch there boat. I thought the poor guy sunk his boat or something and was under water. Very bizarre scene, he came in on a nice boat though.

We decided to go up the Tubungaluk, which is a small river just outside of Bethel. We thought we could catch pike.

We found porcupine remains on a little hike.

This year Moxy is able to walk on the tundra without any problems, his little legs take him quickly down the animal trails.

We took this photo to scare grandma Houston....oh no....Don't worry..Moxy squished berries on his hands.
Ruby below with her new fishing pole fishing for pike. They fished for a while, then decided they could not fish anymore, fish not biting.

Moxy fishing from the bank. He has still got it.

River Breakup 2011

Uncle and Ruby by the water. There were less people this year, and I forgot my camera, but Kristy got some cute pictures. It was cold outside maybe this is why there weren't many people. Greg got the kids down to the river party early, and this year Ruby and Moxy were able to get a hotdog.

Ruby with her little friend Ana and her big sister. You can see the river behind them, there was lots of ice coming down the river, but the big logs are still frozen way up river.
Boaters trying to get logs coming down.
Moxy was camera shy on this day, and I think he fell asleep in my arms.
