Although on airplanes I tend to like the aisle seats… the windows always draw my eyes. Whether it’s a mesmerizing sunset, or the lure of cotton soft clouds, or maybe, the twinkly lights of a small town below, the view is always fascinating. So, when my sil and I went to Alaska a few years back, I knew I wanted a window seat for sure. Alaska in the summer doesn’t have twinkly lights. Alaska in the summer has vivid green everywhere all day/night long.
The greens were amazing and the rivers snaked across the landscape muddy with glacier melt.
The trees and bushes seemed etched into the flatness of the land.
As we got closer to Fairbanks, the rivers became bluer and the trees grew closer to the wheels of the plane. Out the window I saw the shadow of our plane and it looked so small.
And within minutes the shadow and the ground meet. We were in Alaska.
