THREE-TEN TO YUMA
Three-Ten To Yuma was a great movie about a train bringing prisoners to the Yuma Territorial Prison. My 3:10 flight to Yuma had some similarities. You are strapped to and trapped in a seat just like the prisoners. Yuma flights are special transports because big planes don't go there. These small puddle jumpers do. Actually better, less hassle, less people, and comfortable enough. We won't be visiting the Territorial Prison this trip, though. I blogged it in 2009.
Sitting by the window presents a rare opportunity to take aerial photos. Interesting if you can recognize some of what you are seeing as in the once controversial California Aqueduct near the bottom right of the photo.
Which gave way to desert...
...and the Salton Sea.
After being met at the airport by my Sweetie, we went out for an early dinner and celebrated back in the motor home with a bottle of Cooks.
The weather in California is expected to turn stormy and cold. Winter at last. I got out just in time. Back on the road, with temperatures in the 70's. We're living the good life.
