Use the Force, Luke

Yesterday Erin, Katie, and I went on a 90 minute flight to the glaciers north of Anchorage with a family friend. At one point John (the pilot) took us into a long swooping dive toward a mountain (it’s okay, mom and dad, he’s a professional pilot for Fedex). We dropped down into a trench next to the glacier and proceeded to reenact the Death Star trench run from Star Wars at 160mph. We were probably 100 feet off the ground and a hundred or so from the walls of the glacier. Stunning (as you can see from Erin’s face here). I’ll post more pics and videos later, but I had to share this one.
