Anchorage, Alaska to Vancouver, Canada || Flying High

Saying Goodbye To The Snow Of Alaska & Hello To The Rain Of Vancouver, Canada


As seen from Alaska Airlines Flight 96 en route from Anchorage, Alaska, to Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. March 19, 2013

Today was the first day since arriving in Hawaii on February 26 last that I didn’t take a picture with my SLR (in truth it has earned a day off). I did power it up to change the internal time settings to reflect the one hour difference between Pacific Time here in Vancouver & Alaska time. But that’s about it. I did have my iPod of course and I took a few captures on a day of cross border travel & a day when I said goodbye to the snow of Alaska & replaced it with the rain of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

The mountains outside Anchorage, Alaska, as seen shortly after take-off. An endless sea of general whiteness – mountains, glaciers etc. Is it any wonder all I could seem to photograph from ground level were mountains. Turnagain Arm, which I photographed on my first day in Alaska, can be seen towards the top of the image, with the Kenai Peninsula beyond.

The view of Seattle, Washington, from Alaska Airlines Flight 96. My Anchorage to Vancouver flight went via Seattle which enabled me to get my first, albeit brief look at the largest city in the Pacific Northwest region of North America before hopping on another plane for the 30-minute flight across the border to Vancouver. For those with a good eye, the Seattle Space Needle can be seen near the waters edge, under the wing. I’ll be seeing Seattle proper from March 24th next, the first of 3 nights I’ll spend in the city after leaving Vancouver. March 19th 2013 (iPod)

Vancouver || Initial Impressions
It’s my first evening in Vancouver & it’s raining, par for the course in this part of the world – it rains a lot here in the Pacific Northwest. I don’t really know much about what Vancouver has to offer (long gone are the days I’d methodically research locations) but I’m up for seeing what’s out there. But all in good time. Tomorrow.
