Eyes in the Sky

Photo By: Carrie

If you are fortunate enough to sit on the correct side of the plane (the left) and get a widow seat, you then begin to hold your breath as you ascend from Anchorage north to Fairbanks, Alaska. The clouds inevitably gather tightly together as you approach the Alaska Range but maybe you will get to see the giant eyes in the sky.

I can count on one had how many times this view has been clear and unobstructed. In September, when I flew north to run the Equinox marathon, I was pleasantly surprised that the sun stayed in the sky long enough for me to catch a glimpse of Both Denali (20, 322 ft) and Foraker (17,400 ft) peaking between the clouds.

When I got home and Leanne Cole announced the theme for this month’s Monochrome Madness, “clouds” I knew this would be the photograph I would use. You can find more visions of “clouds” HERE.

This view evokes many emotions within me, a wild sense of wonder, a respect for the vastness of our Earth and an appreciation for flying. Where does your mind and emotions wander when looking out an airplane window into the clouds?
