Desert to green (First long-haul flight in 5 months)

Yesterday did an amazing sceneries flight from Las Vegas-McCarran international airport to Beijing-Capital international airport, as part of the Las Vegas flyout hosted by @Plnelovr. Beautiful Western and North Western American scenery, Canadian scenery, Alaskan scenery and Chinese scenery on descent. T’was my first long hauler in 5 months, and I did it happily enjoying the scenery. Anyways I hope the photos are enjoyable!!!

Passing through Oregon, just south of Portland airport. We have Mount Hood, Mount St. Helens, Mount Rainer, Ives/Gilbert Peak and Mount Hood. yayyyyy!!

Passed Washington, now into the South Western Canada, just west of Vancouver, over Vancouver islands. We are over some mountains, and in the far distance: Mount Waddington, Silverthrone mountain, and Mount Vishnu. (I don’t know if they are those mountains, all I can say is British Columbia have amazing mountains!)

ahh yes good ol’ Alaskan mountains, never lets me down.
