Haines, Alaska Day One

AB slashes.

The heli drops away from sight.

Tim Tom was our guide on day 1. Dude is professional. He has been guiding up here for 5 years and knows his stuff. He told me he has 45 days up in the bird this year. I was tired after 4, I can not imagine going 45. Much respect.

Tim keeps an eye on things

Al, one of the best in the biz.

This was the avalanche that caught a member of our group. He went for a pretty long ride. Sorry the quality is not better, its hard to zoom this far with my camera.
