although i can sometimes not breathe when flying because it scares me so much, the flight down to orange county last week was one of the more beautiful ones i've been on skywise. the sun was setting, and the clouds were just below the plane for much of the flight. the sky was the lightest, clear blue. toward the end of the flight, the clouds were not as thick and puffy as in the above photo; they'd smoothed out some and rippled like waves.
the bottom photo is a view from my parents' house of laguna canyon at dusk. bigger.
tract housing and mini malls and roads have advanced closer and tighter around laguna since i was little, but the canyon is mostly intact. i heard frogs there this year, which i haven't heard there in a long time.
