As promised, another remote strip approach photo. Don't ask me why I have a hangup on 'em because I don't know. THis is coming into Lime Village. A different trip from the the preceeding photo. This was in a twin. (insert audible sigh of relief, here)

This is flying through Merrill Pass in a 207 on our way to Lime Village, which is approximately 200 miles west of Anchorage. Personally, I prefer flying the pass in a twin. There are several wreckages visible on the mountainsides, where some poor unfortunate got caught below a dropping ceiling and couldn't turn around and get out or climb out of it. But itis beautiful.
Below are a couple of scanned images of Bettles. These were taken with the Minolta XG-1. Also below is an image from Port Heiden, also called Meshik on some maps.
More later today, hopefully.

The greater Bettles metro area.

Bettles. This has to arguably be one of the northernmost phone booths in the USA.
