5 Great Views from the Sky

I have flown over the Atlantic several times, half way over the Pacific, and to all four corners of the United States. In my many travels, I have been fortunate to see many of the Earth and man’s greatest creations from the sky. Here is a list of what I consider five of the greatest views from the sky.

Hoover Dam

I flew to Las Vegas, Nevada one year to attend a Websphere seminar/training. I knew the Hoover Dam was a huge man-made structure (believed to be the largest dam in the world), but I do not feel anyone can get the full scope of how large it is until they see it from the sky. The semi-circle shape of the dam that spans across the Colorado River with Lake Mead behind it is impressive.

Swiss Alps

I have flown over the great Tetons (part of the Rocky Mountains) and the Appalachian Mountains, but the mountain range that astounds me the most is the Swiss Alps. Their snow-capped peaks and rugged terrain are dotted with clear-blue lakes. Below the snowline are green trees, lush grass, and beautiful flowers of all colors.

North Atlantic Ocean

When flying to Europe, the airlines fly up toward the North Pole, then across the North Atlantic Ocean, and then down to the designated European destination. One would think flying over a body of water would not be very interesting, and they would be right, except when flying over the North Atlantic Ocean. The North Atlantic Ocean is filled with mountainous icebergs that look like small white dots on medium blue colored paper. Although they may appear small from the air, these icebergs can be miles long. The water around each one is a beautiful shade of light green. This green hue is from the bottom of the iceberg (the largest part), that lays beneath the ocean’s surface. The North Atlantic Ocean is also filled with large white-capped waves that are easily viewed from thousands of feet in the air.

Dallas, Texas

Flying over Dallas, Texas during the day is not that spectacular; however, flying over it at night is breathtaking. I flew to Dallas several years ago to give a presentation at the annual meeting of the Herb Society of America. It was a two-day event and my flight home was scheduled for late night. The view from the plane during takeoff was amazing. The lights of Dallas at night, which spread out of many miles, were brilliant. The whole view reminded me of a scene from the movie Tron.

The Convergence of the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers

I live near St. Louis, Missouri where the Missouri River empties out into the Mississippi River. I was flying back from Italy one year; right after a huge storm had passed through the St. Louis region. The storm had churned up so much mud that both rivers looked as if they had chocolate syrup running between their banks instead of water. A scenic beauty had been created that could only have come from nature’s fury.

Whenever, wherever you are flying, always try to get a window seat.
