This land: A flight across the country 

I flew from San Francisco to Newark yesterday, and it was clear across most of the West and much of the East. I took a few pictures from my seat on the starboard -- obviously the southern -- side of the plane. In chronological and geographical order:

Above San Francisco

In the clouds

San Francisco

The Sierras

East of California

High above the west

Over the west

Snow on the high plains

Ice on Ontario

The Delaware River

Love it! Much as I hate sardining into an airplane, I never tire of watching the land forms from the window and seeing some of the sights you document. A flight on a clear day can be a great joy, still.

Wow! In my cross-country sojourns (all two of 'em) I've only ever before seen it from ground level.
Again, wow!

Great photos. It is good to see that you are still allowed to take a camera on board.

What is the thing that looks like a mobile phone or music player in the last photo?
