September Water Quality Sampling
September 6, 2012
That's the view from a Cessna 207 of Sleetmute, AK on our flight from Sleetmute to Aniak. Will and I went out to Georgetown for our Fall water testing. For more information on the testing itself, visit our Water Quality - Results page.
I don’t know about Will, but I was expecting rain and cold - we seemed to luck out and miss the rain they’d been having for the previous few days, if not weeks. It was a fairly quiet trip - I spotted a moose on the banks of the Kuskokwim on our way down from Sleetmute. We had lots of flights this time - our journey consisted of layovers in Aniak and Bethel before heading back to Anchorage. Like always, it was nice to just have a day or two of quiet, away from town.
All was well in Georgetown, and yup - the water is still good! It was revealing for me to get an aerial view of GTC’s land. It looks a lot bigger and grander with this sort of view, although the view from Anne’s house is hard to beat. I can only imagine how nice it would be to wake up, day after day, with a view such as this one. For now, a flight overhead will have to do.
