Guess!!!! ;D

View from above

This is certainly not your Florida-scape!!! So where do you think I am currently?? :) This was my first glimpse of the region as we "cascaded" down into the city last afternoon. This is gonna be a cinch but let's play along a little....the city named after an Indian chief is in a state named after yet another great persona from the history.........Hail the chiefs!!! And no, it's not the most caffeinated US city ;DDD

Great shot of the Cascades and your journey into Washington State.
We will be visiting relatives there over Thanksgiving. Don't want snow since we are driving.
Good luck house hunting.

Nikon said...

Hmm, Mount Rainier, Chief Seah, or Shea, Washington. So I agree with the others that you are heading into Seattle.
Who did you bribe to get that window? That's the cleanest commercial airliner window I've ever seen :)

Max-e said...

What an awesome view. You've got me on the locality... so I will go along with the majority.

Still said...

Cris said...

Beautiful!!! You're heading to bright future!!! Good luck sweetie, you deserve all the best.

Great image, at first sight abstract. The snow on the mountains looks like the glare off a piece of rough cut ice.

Yoda said...

Yay!! You're in PacNorWes now!!

Chad Oneil Myers said...

Looks very "cool" ;)

I know where you are - I remember being wowed by the Cascades out a plane window not all too long ago! I lost all my pictures from that trip, though, so I'm really glad you posted this! So beautiful for something so pointy and cold :)

Faye Pekas said...

Moi, thanks so much for your kind words and for the hug.

Wow!! That's a great shot from the airplane. Those mountains are spectacular. I've been to the airport in Seattle but never to the city itself. I would love to visit someday!

Perpetual Procrastinator said...

bluechic said...

awesome shot! and i don't know where you are but toothless seems to know....:)

hey, congratulations on the thesis! Celebrate!

Wendy said...

With the help of Google.com, I'm guessing: Cascade Summit, Seattle, Washington (named after a Duwamish Indian chief). It's a lovely view of snow covered mountain tops. Kind of looks like ocean waves, too.

RUTH said...

So beautiful wherever it is. :o)

joy said...

I have no idea, but let me take a stab at it - Hawaii? :D

Another great photo, moi!

Moi said...

Seattle , Washington and Cascade Range ..... :)
And I really have no idea how I got that spotless window that i used to my utmost advantage :)
Thanks for the Diwali wishes, Sandeepa, Ash and PP :)

Lara said...

great image!

JAM said...

Beautiful. Definitely not Florida.

It cracks me up to see TV shows where the characters are supposed to be driving in Florida and you can see mountains in the background. I've seen it on Criminal Minds and Without A Trace in the past.

I'd love to see some real mountains though.

Beautiful SHOT! ~ jb///

Kerri said...

Wow Moi! That is a great shot!

Kerri said...

Hey, I'm following another Kerri! You gave the answer away, Silly...in the labels...but of course we were all thinking Seattle, WA :)
It almost looks like waves.
I hope you'll enjoy living in Seattle...the beginning of another adventure :)
