No Room, but a Great View

For the first time in ages, I have a window seat on the flight to Japan and the skies are clear. Coming over the Aleutian Islands, there is a magnificent view of the snow-covered mountains cascading down to an ice-encrusted sea. Absolutely incredible and overwhelming, stark and beautiful. The two things that come to mind are the Biblical story of creation and the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy bit about creation of the fiords.

Sorry, no photos (no room to carry a camera in my luggage and more photogenic folks staying back home).
