25 Hours of Continuous Sun Light and Back Home

Yesterday I experienced 25 hours of continuous sun light on my return to Washington. Sunrise in Mainz, Germany along with a great circle flight path heading west for the return to Washington State chasing the sun westward the whole elongated day. Hence, a bit jet lagged, but back at Stratum Group.
Morning walk along Rhine

Low point of sun during flight somewhere over Greenland

The big surprise was that the forest fires observed when leaving are still going including a blow up somewhere in the upper Skagit.

Multiple fires observed on the east slopes of Cascades while heading east

Lastly, a nice view Glacier Peak before landing in Seattle. Glacier Peak is one of the 5 big strato volcanoes in Washington State.
