Curated Photo IX

The penultimate picture in the series…

Even at 35,000 feet, the mountains looked close enough to touch. 

This is the same range seen by night in yesterday’s post, Curated Photo VIII. Flying over Canada, nearly at the Alaskan border, I was stunned by this view.

Reflecting later, I realized how so many of us take flying for granted. We soar to heights most humans never make it to, allowing us a bird’s eye view of mountain peaks such as this. Incredible! 

And yet, while this is happening–see above photo–some folks have window screens down, others are sleeping, some are playing tablet games, while still others are somehow not taken aback by the grandeur of a Creation not our own.
