    Another day trip to Folsom, a few more pictures out the window. Update. A few more pictures from the trip home.

  • Yet Another View From 19E

    Yet Another View From 19E

    It’s nice to have a new pocket camera for taking snapshots out of the plane window. It was cloudy most of the way so I didn’t see Mt. Thielsen, Diamond Peak, or Crater Lake. I snapped this shortly after takeoff from PDX. As I walked in the gentle mist in Folsom, I heard someone say,…

    The View From 4E

    I’m a big guy — I don’t fit in planes very well. I still request a window seat, even though they’re more sardineous, because I love the view. I do believe it’s time to get a seat on the left side. Don’t miss my enhanced engine shot. :-)
