High in the Sky

On our way to Portland, we flew right over the top of Mt. Jefferson.

We’ve been out-of-town visiting family in Las Vegas for a few days.  It was incredibly hot there – they had record-breaking highs the entire time we were there.  So, I didn’t go outside to take photos very often.  110 degree heat and I don’t get along very well.

We had two beautiful flights on our way to Vegas – from Bend to Portland and Portland to Vegas.  I had window seats both legs of the trip so I was able to take a few photos from the air.

Leaving Portland, we were able to see Mr. St. Helens, Mt. Rainier, and Mt. Baker.

  1. Great photos, not that easy to see anything more than cloud from up there. The last one is my pick, Will there be photos for LV too???? I think I would enjoy LV, but not when it’s hot-HOoOOot! *smile

    1. Thanks Viveka. I will have a few photos from Vegas. We were busy with family most of the time so I wasn’t able to take as many photos as I would have liked. Next time we go it will be when it isn’t quite so hot. How are you doing? I’ve been thinking about you.

I'd love to hear from you
