Twas the sound of the alarm at 3:45am yesterday that launched us into gear and out of bed. Hubby and I both had early morning flights within 5 min of each other. Hubby was off to Indy on business and I was flying into NY (back to our home).
My seatbelt was secured and all the little things I wanted from my bag (for the duration of the flight) were tucked into the magazine holder in front of my chair. And with that I was ready to sit back and enjoy the flight.
Up up and away – Looking down on San Diego
As we climb past the city
Good morning sunshine
The voice over the loudspeaker had just announced that the aircraft had reached its cruising altitude and that the passengers were free to unfasten their seatbelts and move about the cabin.
But with this view, there was no sitting back and relaxing or moving about the cabin – I was completely mesmerized.
I quickly forgot about my book and toys that I had planned for my trip.
As I was captivated with the beautiful world God created.
In this photo you can see we are getting close to the desert, just over this greenish looking stretch of mountains.
The abrupt change looking at the desert floor
Seeing the changes for the first time in my life from the window of the aircraft was amazing, to put it mildly.
And then, just like that there was a distinct line drawn in the sand. And all of a sudden there’s life down below.
And the sandy desert floor quickly turned into a pretty quilt below.
Then just like that another distinct line was drawn in the sand.
This picture of the desert looked as if it were the beach with coral and white caps.
And how it looked down below as we crossed over.
It was amazing to see the ever changing landscape
When all of a sudden I spied these circles in the middle of the desert.
One last shot. Does anyone know what the heck these are?
So this desert shot looked like a huge tree fossil to me.
Another shot directly above it
And that wraps up the first two hours of my flight
And for the remainder of the flight across the US the big fluffy clouds took over.
As much as I enjoyed the pretty view, I couldn’t help wonder what all I was missing down below.
Landing into Philly
And that concludes the end of the day, the last leg of my trip had come to a close.
What a beautiful day, experiencing some of God’s greatness!
