Flying "on-top" through Chickaloon Pass into
Anchorage in a Turbo Cessna 206.
When the photo was taken, the pass had been closed for three days in snow and
fog, with VFR pilots lined up waiting at Gulkana, Eureka, and Palmer for it to lift. We
went on top, intending to make an instrument approach into Anchorage, but
found the weather clearing in the Palmer area (though not in the pass) and let down
through a large broken area over the Knik Glacier so we could take more photos.
