The Road to the Dean... Bella Coola, BC

Glad this guy knows what he's doing...
The flight into Bella Coola, BC has a tendency to make your ass-hole pucker like a balloon knot... It's kind of scary.  You descend thousands of feet very quickly and the nearby steep canyon walls are a visual reminder of why flying into remote parts of coastal BC takes a certain breed of pilot...  They must be a little crazy.  Despite the turbulence, we made it to our jumping off point for BC West and the Dean River yesterday.  Today we fly to steelhead nirvana.
