From the Window Seat, vol. 1

One of my favorite things about flying is sitting in the window seat. Watching the sky and ground below will literally keep me entertained for 4+ hours (as long as I’m not super tired, which happens too often–why is sitting in an airplane so exhausting?!). I’m studying atmospheric sciences right now, and I have a giant love for our planet (I studied hydrology during my undergrad), so I’m a huge nerd when it comes to all things Earth science related. For this post, I wanted to share some of my favorite photos I snapped from the window seat during my most recent trip. (None of the photos have been edited.)

    • It was pretty cool seeing how many fields there were in that one area! I love flying across the country, not only for the great weather, but for the variety seen on the ground! Each part of the country is so different, and it’s so cool to see that from the air. 🙂
