Majestic Rainier

Along with shelling out your hard-earned cash for the ticket, when you take a plane ride, you get the cheap thrill of seeing the earth from what might now be known as the Google Earth perspective. It’s a lesson in how to feel small—or perhaps the size we should be feeling all the time.
