With the weather pattern we had, we took off to the east right over town so we had a close up look of Anchorage with fresh snow.

To the left of center is the Seward Highway-Dimond intersection. It's NOT a black and white photo.
And here's a view of more of snowy Anchorage.
According to the passenger next to us who was from Soldotna, the weather pattern caused a United flight to Anchorage to land in Kenai. Problem was when they were supposed to proceed on their trip to Anchorage, they had a security problem. Kenai doesn't have big passenger jets landing there and if there are fewer than 50 passengers, they don't have to go through security. So Kenai doesn't have the necessary security for a big plane. Not sure what they did. (I checked to see if the ADN already covered this story. They did talk about it, but not the security part. So read this as something heard, but not confirmed.)
Our route to Prince William Sound was a little different and I saw some different views, also partly because of all the fresh snow. I need to find a geologist or glaciologist to find out about the patterns in the snow.

And there wasn't much to see until we arrived in LA. Still trying to learn how all the different options work on my Canon Rebel. So the color is a little off in this night shot.
[The last post doesn't seem to have been caught by feedburner. I thought we were over those problems.]
