Go BACK to all UAE pics

DXB-AMS-MSP-SLC

My flight home was Dubai to Salt Lake City via Amsterdam and Minneapolis. I had a right side window, and got some fantastic views over territory mostly unseen by me previously. I saw cities, meandering rivers, mountain valleys and fans in Iraq(!), the snowy Caucuses of Georgia, the Black Sea (covered in clouds, unfortunately), snowy Germany, and lovely Amsterdam at close range on landing and takeoff. We then flew west toward the sun, thus preventing a full sunset, although we did fly far to the north. Thus, I had a long-lived view of the curved shadow of the Earth over my right shoulder. Finally, a lovely lake welcomed us to Minneapolis.
