View From the Plane Window


Taking off from Newark – that’s Red Bull Arena to the right

I love looking out the window of the plane, seeing the tapestry of the earth below. I take photos of the geography and promise myself that I will look it up later and figure out what I was seeing. When I flew to Phoenix in September I took a gazillion pictures AND I took pictures of the plane tracker map as well, so that I might have a clue about where I was when I took the photos. Well, now it’s January and I never did anything with any of those photos. It’s times like this that I really miss my father – he knew everything about geography and maps. I’d have been able to show him the real land and the plane tracker and he’d have been able to tell me the rivers and the mountains. Failing that, however, I give you the photos and the plane map and you can figure it out if you are so inspired! (And then tell me, please!)

Looks like this must be the Mississippi River


Exactly how I imagine Kansas – flat fields


I took soooo many photos over Colorado – mountains, fields, water


Heading down to Phoenix!

    Love the photos!!! (And btw, *I* know everything about maps, too! ) But yeah, Daddy would have loved playing with the new technology.

    very true – you do know maps and geography. although you tend to observe it all from ground level. 🙂 I always think that if Daddy were sitting next to me, and I pointed out the window and asked “what’s that?”, he would know. 🙂 “WHY do you argue with me?”
