Leighan Falley on Mountains, Motherhood and Learning to Fly

As a long-time skier, climber and guide in the Alaskan Range, Leighan Falley is intimately familiar with the joys of working such an occupation. But when she became a mother, she realized the dangers of her job and decided to give it up. Unwilling to leave Alaska, Leighan found a different way to return to the mountains: as a bush pilot, flying the skies of one of the wildest zones in North America.
