Water and Sky

In Coastal BC, the easiest ways to travel to remote locations is by water and sky. In some cases, both at once. Around here, float planes are used for work and pleasure.

On Powell Lake, most float planes support the logging industry. They take workers to sites up and down the lake. We often see them skimming low through First Narrows in front of our cabin.

At times, boats and float planes share the same space.

But after a short run, the plane can take to the sky.

And off to work, or play, or to discover the adventure of a lifetime. -- Margy

  10. Margy, this is such a great series of photos and from a different perspective. I got my private and commercial license years and years ago however after a near death experience as a young and inexperienced pilot I decided to stay closer to terra firma but I still dream of those times free of the earth's hold.
    Thanks for sharing
