I flew to the National Cave Rescue Commission weeklong training in Mentone, Alabama via Salt Lake to Las Vegas to Nashville. I managed to score window seats on both flights and it was a clear day, so I had a lot of fun looking at the terrain. Can you identify what I saw? I'll have the answer at the bottom of each photo.
First flight: Salt Lake City to Las VegasLittle Sahara Recreation Area, a large sand dune area north of Delta, Utah
Next, on to the flight from Las Vegas to Nashville:
On the return trip, I had a window seat on the other side of the plane. It was a lot cloudier, but over Arizona it cleared up.
San Francisco Volcanic Field, an 1800-acre area with more than 600 vents. It looks so cool from the air!
Next time I hope to remember a map so I can figure out even more landmarks.
