Bird’s Eye View of Suburban Sprawl

PHX April 12 06

It was early evening when my flight to Phoenix reached the Valley of the Sun. Since my Dad moved to Arizona in May 2014 I’ve been flying to Arizona twice a year from Ohio to visit him.

So the view as on final approach to Sky Harbor Airport is starting to look familiar.

The sun is about to set everything has that late day light warm glow to it unless it is encased in shadows. From up above, it looks so neat and orderly.

As far as I can see, though, is row upon row of suburban housing with some mountains in the distance. It is those mountains that suggests that this is the West and not another Midwest city.

It is not home but it is beginning to have a home-like feel.
