Kenmore Air Harbor, de Havilland Beaver ‘Maggie’, Kenmore, WA
‘Maggie’ is checked out prior to being put back into the water. A few years back 'Maggie' was painted in a King 5 Evening News paint scheme. When I was with C. C. Filson we considered painting 'Maggie' with a C. C. Filson paint scheme. But it was not to be and 'Maggie' returned to the standard Kenmore Air paint.

The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.
The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.
The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.
The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seatle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer.
