Southwest Airlines Flights, April 2015


The Oakland – Albuquerque route provides some great scenery. Sometimes you get to see the Grand Canyon, or the Utah canyon lands further north, and you always get to see a section of the Sierras. Earlier posts have shown some of the photos taken on prior trips. This post shows both Kathy’s photos and mine, taken on separate trips in April of this year. I was on the sunny side of the plane, with a smudged window, which resulted in inferior photos, but I include them because of their informational value. Kathy did lots better, without sunlight hitting directly on her window, using her iPhone. I was later able to identify most non-obvious locales with the help of Google Earth.
