Rainier today was absolutely was worth the price of the entire trip. Visibility on the ground was nil…maybe 1000 feet. Instrument take off shortly before 7 AM. When the plane popped through the low cloud layer it was like, WOW, OMG, LOOK AT THAT! OOHH, AHHH! The entire plane tilted to the port side as everyone leaned over to get pictures of this spectacular sunrise. This moment was another validation to Kongo’s rule of always keeping a camera handy!

Yesterday Kongo took advantage of an absolutely glorious October Sunday to spend a few hours in New York’s Central Park. The weather was warm but every once in a while a cool, chilling breeze chased along the paths, reminding everyone of colder days ahead. Maple trees were particularly spectacular. Sycamores had already lost most of their leaves. A huge Breast Cancer Walk added plenty of activities and noise with a band, banging drums, and splashes of pink everywhere. Continue reading
