"This Is Your Captain Speaking"

I have a friend who is a commercial pilot, and he's given me permission to post his most recent pictures from up front. All commentary is his.

"Cascades 'peaking' through the clouds."

"Mt. St. Helens. Taken looking toward the sun so it is rather hazy. You can see the side that was blown away. "

"Another photo of Mt. Ranier. I have wanted to climb Rainier on the Liberty Ridge Route (it starts at the left of the photo). It looks very imposing and slopes up to 60 degrees towards the top. The photo and 39,000' flatten the mountain out. "

"Mt. Ranier from 39000'. This is cool. It was much more impressive looking out my window. "
