Long day – I need to rethink this


Long day, half way through. I did not get great views of Seattle on the way in. It was cloudy and rainy coming in with a few peaks of the ground here and there.

The airport was nice. I came into the S concourse and needed to take the train to the A concourse. I had about 50 min so there was time for a quick bathroom break and that was about it. They had some neat painted windows.

Our departure from Seattle back to Minneapolis was delayed about 40 min or so. There was something behind the plane so we could not push back until it was moved….. And it took 30 min or so to get that done. There were a number of different carriers.

This made the connection for the Anchorage flight really tight…. Especially if I needed to change to another concourse. I was not too concerned because I’d flown in and out of MSP a number of time and had pretty good mental map of where I would need to go. The sunset was awesome during our approach.

Fortunately, the flights were across from one another…. I was able to walk off one and get right in line for the next. They were already boarding zone 2, so I ended up with my bad under my seat…. Quite the unpleasant 5 hours. Not so bad if you are exit row or economy comfort…. But I was not. Arrived in Anchorage, had dinner did some airport shopping.. Changed into some clean clothes and am now ready to go the other way!

Some snaps from the airport.

These looked like they were made from boat (ship) props.

I was hoping to see northern lights… but does not look like this trip.
