A hundred miles later, the clouds thinned and despite high winds, the ride remained remarkably smooth. [Isabel Goyer]
Approaching Midland, Texas, the clouds began to thin and we got occasional glimpses of the ground, some of them geometrical. [Isabel Goyer]
The peaks in Guadalupe National Park are spectacular even from 11,000 feet. [Isabel Goyer]
Beyond Midland and approaching Junction, Texas, the combination of late afternoon light and a perfectly scattered and even cloud deck led to the most brilliant show of sun rays I've ever seen. [Isabel Goyer]

One of the advantages of the gorgeous silver wings on the Cirrus: they get painted the colors of the sky. [Isabel Goyer]
Nearing Austin, this was my welcome home. Who could ask for more?
