I don’t remember if the food was good, or the bed was comfortable, but I definitely remember the sunrise!

The big chimney in the far ground, that’s the Navajo Generating Station. That’s the 3rd biggest CO2 emitter in the United States. With its vapor, I was clearly able to identify this in the airplane 20,000 feet high.
