From a Window Seat - YYC to SJD

These photos were taken from a window seat on WestJet Flight 2290 on October 14, 2018. The weather was mostly clear and snow was just dusting some of the mountains in Montana and Utah. We flew over some pretty interesting stuff. Check out the photos and explanations below…

Up in the Air Photos #1

I love looking out airplane windows and while an aisle seat has a few alleged advantages, I usually nap and get dinged by the beverage and food carts as they go up and down the aisle. So if it is a daytime flight,  I’m usually on the window. Today’s flight flew over Alberta, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico and Texas before entering Mexican airspace

The sky was hazy in Alberta due to forest  fires (but that smoke created an awesome red sunrise).
