Winging My Way Back Home

With thunder storms predicted for the afternoon and the only severe storms in the country in the far eat part of the US we didn’t feel too bad knowing that it was time to go home. Brian and Keith dropped us off at around noon and we said our goodbyes and headed off to our respective destinations. My first destination was the Denver Airport where I had to while away about six hours. Don had an even longer wait so we found a spot at a Mexican Cantina to while the hours away. The “sails” of the Denver airport caught my attention so I wandered around for a bit working the different angles until I came upon the escalator…

I said a last goodbye to Don and headed to my gate. With thunderheads building, I had to pull out my D300s with 18-200mm lens for the flight home. We flew right through the updrafts leaving Denver…

Around about Pocatello, the clouds dissipated and we had the patchwork of the topographic landscape below to enjoy…

It was a gorgeous flight from Denver to Portland with a final photo opportunity as we passed by my Welcome Home landmark…Mt Hood bathed in late afternoon light…
