A Golden Hour Flight Up the West Coast

San Jose del Cabo to San Francisco

A couple of days ago San Francisco was a featured airport, along with other Pacific Northwest airports. I was going to fly from Paine Field or Boeing Field down to San Fran but at the last minute I decided to fly from San Jose del Cabo on the Baja California peninsula of Mexico. I’ve flown a couple of flights down the coast to Los Cabos from Portland, LAX, etc… and I wanted to try the opposite flying up the coast. United and Alaska both fly this route, so I decided to fly with Alaska because it’s one if my favorite liveries, I love the colors but I’m not too sure why. I used the 737-900, and flight time up the coast was 2 hours and 35 minutes.

Pushing back in the late afternoon of a warm fall day



Gear up on a steep climb into the veryyyyy blue sky


Just off the west shores of Mexico


Flying directly over the city of San Diego at 34,000 feet


Banking over the city of Angels, Los Angeles



The sun starts to set as we descend over the brown mountains of California


Gear down as the moon rises to the east


Touching down beneath a cotton candy sky in San Francisco


Taxiing to the gate as a United 777 touches down from the worst airport in the world… I mean Newark
