I always try to get an airplane window seat, particularly when flying over the mountain west. The dramatic changes in geography can be stunning. Flying over the Midwest is not as interesting. I’ve taken countless photos out the window of an airplane of geographic features and man-made structures that stand out. I even make sure I have the window seat on the right side of the plane. Sit on the wrong side of the plane and you can miss all the cool stuff.
The below photos are a perfect example of a great window view flying over the Rockies. Here’s a window seat view of the beautiful Rocky Mountains between Yellowstone National Park and Grand Teton National Park in northwest Wyoming and Missoula, MT. These photos were taken during two different flights at different times of the year. One from Denver to Missoula and the other a return trip. Enjoy Yellowstone to Missoula from the air.
