    Default Lake Louise to Birchwood

    Flew up last night in beautiful weather, stayed overnight at Lake Louise Lodge woke up to Bluebird skies. At breaking and headed to the plane. We took off West bound for Talkeetna but encountered heavy smoke in the mountains at wantna Creek. Turned back to East and the smoke was just as bad. Now we are back at Lake Louise wanting on the smoke to clear on the route to the valley...

    Not looking good right now. Hopefully the wind shifts soon for you and for the fire fighters! Safe travels!

    Be careful with that smoke it can change quickly, keep the ground in site at all times or you can be IFR in just a few seconds. Did you do the fly in at Port Alsworth?? Some of the birchwood boys are down there.
