Headstands and grizzly bears on quick flight up Talkeetna River

What's a few hours in the Talkeetna Mountains offer? Snow, sunshine, rain, rainbows, sheep, caribou, grizzly bears on a river -- and a headstand for good measure. Matt Keller photo

We put a few hours on the Super Cub today, mashing around the Talkeetna Mountains.  The weather was truly awesome.  Awesome in terms of variety.  We saw heavy snow fall, sunshine, clouds, reduced visibility, rain, sleet, rainbows, wind, and more sunshine.  I love Alaska, I love the unpredictable weather.  In one valley we saw 12 sheep,16 caribou, and a grizzly bear all within a half mile of each other.  We did stop on the Talkeetna River just long enough for a head stand, and a short walk.  Thankful for another day enjoying God's creation.
