A miscellaneous mountain range.

Grand Tetons and Yellowstone

The Grand Tetons, Jackson Lake (the large one in the middle), and at the top, apparently still frozen over, Yellowstone Lake.

A 757

Cabin full of bored people. Taken for no particular reason.

Mountains

Miscellanous mountains, probably the Cascades. Not sure exactly where we were - about an hour's flight east/southeast of Seattle.

Cascade Mountains

Taken 36 minutes later, I believe this shot is aiming at Mt. Baker, in the Cascade Range northeast of Seattle.

Another shot of the Cascades and Mt. Baker.

Cascade Mountains

Another shot of Mt. Baker.

Mt. St. Helens

A fuzzy shot of Mt. St. Helens. I took this using the digital zoom, shooting all the way across the cabin and out the window on the far side of the plane (hence the low quality).

Mt. Rainier

Another digital shot across the plane. Apparently we flew really close to the mountain. This is the left flank of the mountain (from our perspective).
