My brother, who went on to become a commercial pilot flying 747's for Atlas Air (Anchorage), got his float plane certification before he got his instrument rating...
He thought he'd surprise us with a visit at the lake here one Sunday in the 80's and dropped in and taxied up to the dock. What a surprise he got when he found nobody here - we had already left for home... and the weather very quickly had him socked in for three days with a rented plane with no radio and with no phone to call in to the airport... and there was no food here except cookies, crackers and water.

I went back up onto that ridge yesterday afternoon to fetch this very cool and relatively young volcanic breccia boulder that I didn't have time to load up my first trip up there. This is going to end up in a local museum at some point. It's a very unusual rock for this region and is likely around 6 million years old or less, which for this area, is very very young. It would be right at home in an active volcanic province, but around this part of Alaska, it's an extreme rarity. I could likely walk those ridges for the next 10yrs and not find another like it. No adventurous takeoff from the ridge this time.

Incredible find Richard. The year after I fished the Talachulitna and the Kvichak in ‘92, Mount Spurr blew it’s top and covered the region in a layer of dust... But that’s a few hundred miles from you, and any rock from that eruption is certainly not 6 million years old.

I have a jar full of Mt Spurr ash I got off the street in Anchorage. I was living in that area at the time. It really blanketed Anchorage good. I was better of than most in having an oil bath air cleaner on my '66 Bronco. Some folks kept on driving their modern cars and destroyed their engines when they ingested that abrasive ash.

I wonder how all that ash affected the spawning beds in the rivers of that area, and for how many years??

I don't think it fell during spawning season and it is a light ash so likely washed away pretty quickly in rivers.

A beautiful evening/night trip to see Brian the other day. (Please excuse the quality of my aging phone camera)
