Wasatch Airplane Views

Wasatch Mountains - Salt Lake City, Utah

Flying from Salt Lake International Airport, Salt Lake City, Utah over the Wasatch Mountain Range.

I got assigned an aisle seat, but I asked the couple from Houston sitting next to me if I could have the window, they kindly let me. I sat down all giddy because the window was so clean... Then the wing de-icer guy came by and sprayed a mist all over the window. Luckly, the plane moved fast enough to wipe off most of the droplets.

De-icing the wings at the Salt Lake City International Airport.

Looking south from near Bountiful. The entire polluted Salt Lake Valley is visible.
Give this cesspool of filth a few more weeks to brew a gooey soup of cancer and death.
Then climb a mountain like Grandeur Peak, up to about 6,500 and you will rise out of the chemicals,
careful though, your body will be shocked by the fresh air.

The Wasatch Mountains are on the right, and the Oquirrh Mountains are on the left.
The furthest peak in the middle is Mount Nebo.
