I am an Ice Pilots TV series fan – what the pilots of Buffalo Airways face in terms of extremes of cold and flight reminds of bush flying as a teacher moving between fly-in communities and airports with road access; each pilot has my respect.

Sunday, following the photo walk, before returning South, to High Level and a Thanksgiving meal, I found my way to Buffalo Airways at the Yellowknife Airport. One of my bucket list goals is to fly in a Buffalo Airways DC-3 or DC-4 from Hay River to Yellowknife and to tour the Yellowknife facility. It nearly happened this past summer. Here, I was able to photograph these aircraft that were a part of my father’s travel in the early sixties. I am looking forward to what might be possible next summer.

Also, to note is that I am an Ice Road Trucker TV series fan because winter road conditions I drive upon in Northern Alberta hold many of the same perils that are encountered on bush roads. What was surprising was to find Ice Road Trucker, Art Burke, dining at the Gold Range Bistro on Saturday before the World Wide Photo Walk. Very cool.

Quote to Consider / Inspire – ‘Photographs open doors into the past but they also allow a look into the future.’ – Sally Mann

Listening to – Stan Rogers’ ‘Northwest Passage,’ ‘Canol Road,’ ‘Barrett’s Privateers’ and Sigur Ros’ ‘Glosoli.’
