Video: Denali's Raven - The Life of a Mountain Pilot in Alaska
Leighan Falley grew up in Alaska, dreaming of climbing the big mountains there. As an adult, those dreams came true as she became a ski guide and mountaineer, with a focus on Denali herself. But once she became a mother, she no longer felt the risks of those professions were worth it, so she turned in a different direction. Now, Falley is a mountain pilot, taking her plane out into the wilderness on a regular basis. This video tells her story and shares the immense, amazing, and breathtaking landscapes of Alaska along the way. Truly the last great wilderness.
