Thanksgiving Eve Flight

Thanksgiving Eve we took the historian and for much of the time I held the window up high so he could take photos with his big camera.  I got just a couple of  shots ‘on the fly’ with my point&shoot, one pretty and the other playful.  I took this sunset by shooting backwards as we had just turned Tripp east for the airport:

My quick capture of this offshore oil platform in the fading light amid camera motion created the look of Lifesaver candy lights:

We flew over Fremont’s likely “slippery rock” spot again, and since Anne doesn’t seem moved to share some of her pix from the flights here’s one I find interesting.

So if this groove was made prior to Fremont’s trek, were those tracks there too? Are they as seems the case, worn into the sandstone? What created those perpendicular lines? Maybe added for traction? Can you tell I like this sort of thing? 🙂
