A Better Map of Anchorage

As we flew out of Anchorage today to go to an important graduation in Seattle, the plane took off to the south rather than the usual northern loop. And I saw a much better view of Anchorage than what I've been seeing lately. Here's today's view.

Here's the view of Anchorage I've gotten more familiar with in the last 3 months:

Turnagain Arm was pretty spectacular.

Following the Seward Highway south.

Bird Point
Here's a link to the State's webcam shot there a little after this picture was taken.

Note:  In case it wasn't obvious, there was a bit of photoshop tampering with the top picture to merge three different pictures together and to acknowledge a bit that they were from somewhat different angles.
