Mount Shasta from the air

Here is an attempt to catch California from the air, coming from the east. Far, far away, in the middle of the picture (click on it to see a larger picture) you can see Mount Shasta (where fellow alien blogger Anne-Marie lives) (not ON the mountain, but next too it).

The lake is not Lake Tahoe, but Pyramid Lake, north east of Reno. The lake is actually in Nevada, the border to California a bit west of the lake.

I remember flying over Shasta in May and it looked awesome when you get really close to it.
I must say though being on the ground near it was pretty awesome to. I love that mountain. It takes my breath away.

I'm flying up to Bend, OR on Tuesday to spend Halloween with Spiderman and an Asian Princess - my grandkids.
Mt. Shasta is so impressive from the ground and from the air.
A beautiful area.
Hoping for a clear day..

Britgirl - I never been close to the ground and this is as close I've ever been on air. Tricky with the camera - sure wish I had had a better zoom lens...

Margoth - I hope you have a great trip - I love looking at the earth from the air! Too bad the trip between Chicago and Stockholm is pretty uneventful... besides Greenland and Island. The coolest trip I made was a day trip between Dar Es Salaam and London - over Africa, the Nile, the Mediterranean etc - amazing! Hope you have great Halloween with -Spiderman and the Pricess. I'll celebrate mine with a pirate and a clown...

Annika - ja, jättehäftigt! Tyvärr fick jag inte ta bilder strax efter detta eftersom man inte får ha något elektriskt på under inflygning - så fånigt...

Dar Es Salaam, Nilen och Medelhavet maste ha varit en upplevelse.
Min mest intressanta resa var fran LA till Buenos Aires for ett par ar sedan.
Amazonas ar enormt, fattade det nog inte innan jag flog over det, tog flera timmar.
Ask vadret som vi sag over
Bolivien var fantastiskt att se, pa hall...
Flyga till olika stader i Kina och landa ar ungefar som att landa pa Arlanda pa kvallen.
Inte mycket upplyst runt omkring storstaderna. Shanghai och Guangzhou ar ju miljonstader, med lite belysning pa kvallarna.
Aka fran nan flygplats in till staderna mitt i natten sa far man for sig att man ar langt ute pa landsbygden

När det är klart väder kan man se Mt Shasta på väldigt långt håll. Nu när det är så mycket snö på berget borde det synas ännu bättre. Kul att se!
