Alaska by Air

Alaska By AirI haven't done any Wordless Wednesday posts in a while and I took this picture back in October when I was flying back into Anchorage from Los Angeles. I guess I just felt like posting it today, it seems so pretty.

So beautiful! I have to make it up there some day, I have heard so many amazing things and seen enough photographic evidence to warrant a visit!

Robin said...

Gorgeous!! Someday...

I love Alaska by air. We've only gone up in the late spring and summer but there always has been a lot of snow on the mountains - and glaciers of course. It's a beautiful flight from the lower 48.

Oh pretty!

Chas said...

It looks too pretty to be real- almost like one of those models they do for movies. I've never been to Alaska, but I would love to visit and see its beauty.

Beautiful picture.

Oh, it's lovely! I love mountains from the air. This picture reminds me of my year in Washington State. I miss the NW.

That's so gorgeous! ALMOST made me want to go to Alaska (wink).

Kristen M. said...

Gorgeous. I can't resist taking pictures from the air either, especially sunrises/sunsets.

Enzie at World Market Portraits said...

It is a lovely photo. I also am always amazed to see the many lines left by passing airplanes that criss cross the sky.

Maddy said...

Ah a window seat! Well planned.
Cheers

Sonja said...

It is very lovely! Thanks for sharing.

Brandi said...

I love the pic!!! I have some like this from where we flew in. Such an amazing sight...nothing then these gorgeous mountains. Thanks for sharing.

Ann said...

Picturesque moments rarely repeat themselves. Thanks for sharing the moment you captured while flying the friendly skies.

Sarah said...

what a gorgeous photo. hard to believe it was taken through a window, it looks so clear!

Erin said...

That is an amazing picture! I will be sure NOT to show this to my husband, because he will be so jealous. He really really wants to visit Alaska. Someday.

Amanda P. said...

Beautiful!

Renee said...

Wow that's beautiful. My husband and I are considering buying a vacation home up there. I've never experienced that type of climate. We'd like to come up there in the summer/fall and retreat back here to Texas for our mild winters. Email me at renee@taug.net if you'd like; I'd love to hear your thoughts!

Cathi said...

I have a dream of going on an Alaskan cruise to see exactly what is in your beautiful photo.
Happy WW Michelle.

Lisa said...

I love the picture! I have loved reading about the freeze festival, too. I love all your Alaska posts, I guess, because it is something so different and really cool.

Heather said...

breathtaking.

Stunning

One of my strongest memories from flying into and out of Fairbanks as a kid was flying over the top of Mt. McKinley. If I could draw, I would try to draw out what I remember seeing out of my teeny airplane window. It was gorgeous.

That's a great shot!

SarahHub said...

That is simply breathtaking!

ChefDruck said...

That is an amazing picture. So hauntingly beautiful with all its gray and white.

Deanna said...

Okay, was this bit of photo sharing a bit of self-distraction from what may have otherwise been a "who would want to live up here on a day like this!" screed? We go from near-30 below to 30+ above with one day of decent skiing squeezed in the middle. Your restraint is commendable.

Laurel Nelson said...

Great picture - the lower 48 does not have scenery like that, not by a long shot! That's a good thing about being up here, we're just surrounded by all this beauty and until you see it you just have no clue, nothing else can compare. Nothing!

Summer said...

That is so majestic and beautiful!

Amelia StoryGirl said...

Ooh so pretty in a grayish, cool color! Some of my favorite pictures are the ones we took in Alaska 5 years ago. I can't wait to come back!

Janet said...

That is beautiful, but my goodness it makes me shiver. Of course, it's 8 degrees here and snowing, which is fairly unusual for us, so that may be part of the problem.

chelle said...

That is a gorgeous shot!

Michelle said...

That's just breathtaking Michelle ;) thanks for sharing with us.

stan said...

that's a breathtaking view. Sure hope to drop in to alaska someday!

Damselfly said...

Very mountainous! And white! :)

Stephanie said...

It certainly is beautiful, but it makes me glad that I live here in sunny AZ. I prefer to *visit* those snowy, wintery places. :)
