The one picture not taken near Dulles. En-route to Montreal FL250 on a beautiful fall (almost winter evening) There is a big high pressure sitting over the area but with the little bit of moisture left around we have had a stratocu layer about 2000 feet thick covering most of the province.
Just abeam Washington, DC about 65 miles directly west we pass by this slithering river. I guess it follows the path of least resistance and in this case back and forth was the easiest way to go. Pretty nice scenery though to keep your brain occupied while sitting at FL240 for 2 hours.
Again same area as before but from a different angle. I have spent the morning reading about Virginia and I think it has one of the most diverse geography and also the greatest history of the East Coast. Plus during the Civil war (1861-1865) Virginia housed the capital of the Confederate States of America. It is responsible for the first successful colonies in the New World and has also fathered many a US President.
Exactly where the picture was taken. To the immediate south east is LDN VOR or Linden. The magenta rings and the black spot in the middle is KIAD or Washington, Dulles International. We are about 20 miles from entering West Virginia which can be seen as a dotted line running northeast and southwest. Pretty bumpy flight today as there jet stream was heading straight south and then around Florida reversed directions 180 degrees and went directly north only about 300 miles apart. Picture a river having to do a 180 and 100 mph and change direction, you can imagine the water spraying everywhere. That's basically the same reason I have hit my head about 3 times off the roof on todays flight.
