Otter refuels on Colorado River on route from Alaska

This is a de Havilland Canada DHC-3 Otter. It landed on the river north of Parker this afternoon to be refueled by Parker Oil. The aircraft, which seats 11, was making a journey from the state of Alaska and needed a waterway in the desert on which to refuel. Its destination is unknown. A Parker Oil employee said they are called upon occasionally to refuel sea planes which choose Parker as a good spot, made possible by the company’s fuel trucks. More below.
