Tiny Plane, Away!

Yesterday was my first opportunity to ride in a plane smaller than your typical three-seats-on-each side, 40+ row kinda plane.  I was only headed down to Kenai (around a 4 hour drive), but chose not to brave the mountain pass in the throes of winter.  My fear of sliding off the side of the road, landing in a ditch, and slowly freezing to death while out of cell phone range was enough to have me booking a flight in a nice, safe airplane.

The views from the plane were somewhat obstructed as it was a pretty overcast day here in Anchorage, but an aerial view of the sea ice coming into the inlet made up for the lack of visibility otherwise.  After we crossed the inlet, I got my first glimpse of the sun bursting through the clouds.  The sun can be deceiving, however, as it was just three degrees when I got off the plane!  Despite the cold, Kenai is a beautiful place to spend an afternoon (although the majority of it was spent working).
