Peaks from Above

Oh, I meant to get this in before October, but then I caught the flu and didn’t feel like doing much of anything. Seems kind of early for flu season….

I flew up to Oregon for a long weekend and took the shots below from the plane. I had a short layover in Seattle, which was experiencing terrible air quality due to fires. At first I thought it was fog. That made it really nice to climb up for this view….

Pretty sure this is Mt. Rainier. So glad I had a window seat for a change.

I had almost forgotten about Mt. St. Helens until I saw the caldera. They’re both so beautiful.

I’ll post more photos from Oregon in the future.

    Glad you’re back! Love that view of the caldera.

    Very beautiful. I’m sorry you had the flu. It’s even worse in summer.
    At first I thought, these look like the Alps but they don’t. They are not as sharp, therefore, if I’m not wrong, they are older.

    • Thanks, Caroline. I haven’t had the flu in years.
      I’m so glad to hear you say that about the Alps. I once told someone that some mountain ranges are older because they’re not as sharp, and they thought I was nuts! Evidently they thought that every single mountain range formed at the same time.

  4. Absolutely breathtaking! How did you manage to make such clear photos! Nice to see you here back! I am also with cold in bed now!
