I was visiting the Lands of America Blog site the other day to see their post about our Texas Equine Study, and I was drawn to this post with beautiful topographical pix. I happen to think we have the most beautiful country in the world, and when I fly, I am in the window seat hoping for a clear sky and snapping photos. I love the transition from irrigated “crop circles” (as my city friends call them) to rough grasslands to winding rivers and forests before hitting the rural-urban interface–and the Washington monument. In fact, I love the thrill of covering all that territory and landing over the Atlantic ocean coming into Boston.
My photos are never as beautiful as these NASA ones, but you can view some of those at the link below and then scroll down to see some of mine from as well.
