Second Half

This is the second half of our trip home.
It happened on Monday, but I was too tired to manage a post that evening, and then it was just a bit busy here.

To recap: On our trip to Colorado our flight was delayed so we arrived two hours early.
This was due to getting rescheduled on a direct flight, skipping the Sacramento stop.
Return trip did include Sacramento.

This meant that the second half took us up the west coast.
We sat on the right side of the plane (east) to try to catch a glimpse of Mt. Rainier as we came into Seattle.

We got Mt. Rainier and 8 more volcanoes.

Shasta, Diamond, Bachelor, Sisters, Hood, Adams, St. Helens and Rainier. (Crater Lake too, but no pictures.)
[Pardon the poor camera quality, and a dirty window as well.]

And they decided to come in reverse order!

In other news on sights to see, I sat through 45 minutes to go a few miles today on the way home. Turns out the traffic jam inducing event are boats lining up for Saturday’s Opening Day of Boating Season at the Montlake Cut. Opening Day includes boat parades, crew races, and traffic jams. As I was finally getting to see the boats myself, an eagle flew over and landed on a light post as I passed under. I guess that was payment for waiting 45 minutes because of a boat blockade.
