Flying by the seat of my pants

I guess you could say I like to fly by the seat of my pants.  Yesterday I got a call from my dad asking if I would fly to SLC to help him drive his old truck back home (He got a new one).  I told him I would.  The plane was scheduled to leave at 4:30 and I called and they said I needed to be there by 4 PM.  It was already 3:20 so I hurried and packed my laptop up (I even forgot my charger) and headed down the road.  I got to the aiport on time and got my ticket bought and checked in.  When I went through security I got a first time thing for me.  They took a little wand with some fabric on the end and basically suffed it around my laptop and in all the cracks and crevises then stuck it in the machine that sniffs for bombs and drugs and things.  Of course it all came clear though.  The ride to SLC was very smooth and soooo beautiful.  I don’t think I have ever enjoyed a plane ride as much as that one.  I got to see the sun set over the clouds and the tips of the mountians.  By the time we arrived in SLC it was growing dark so I got to see the city lights from above.  I have been on the plane quite a bit but it was verry different this time since the smaller planes fly alot lower then the larger planes so you get to see more detail of the landscape below.  I drove my dads truck back to vernal and was back in town by about 11 PM.  I am attaching a picture of the plane I rode on and a few shots I snapped from the window.
