One minute you’re over the Appenine mountains in Tuscany…
And the next minute (well, 12 hours later, counting connections) you are over the western USA. Where it’s winter. And it’s cold. And dry.
And kind of starkly beautiful.
Check out that weird shape in the earth below, covered with snow. Alien symbols for UFOs? When I was 13, I would have thought so.
To me, the patterns and colors are beautiful.
