I don’t fly very often, and my last transatlantic trip was in 1990, so views from airplane windows are a source of wonder. This picture was taken some 30,000 feet above Greenland. There are a number of others of sea ice on Hudson Bay and long straight roads in rigid grids across north Canada. Then clouds intervened and there was only a brief glimpse of the Rockies before we came into San Francisco.
