My love affair with DL continues that Sunday, March 12th. After a wonderful week full of activities and wonders discoveries at Yellowstone, we head back to civilization. A bonus can be found at the end of this flight report.
We give our car rental back and proceed to the terminal. Both are very close to each other, so there is no need for a shuttle.
SLC is a very nice airport, very bright and easy to navigate.
Check in will be easy and fast and we are all added to the upgrade list. As we are three, I did not have much hope.
A bit of spotting airside, lots of DL Tails, and some AA mad dog:
Flight will be on time:
15 minutes before boarding, I have a look at the upgrade list and all our seats are confirmed in First. My parents will be very happy as they never experienced a free upgrade, even if the flight is only 50 minutes, we are all pleased about it.
This is the First class seat, very comfy, but nothing to do with a long haul F/Seat :)
Very good legroom:
On time push-back and some spotting again with this CRJ Skywest:
Mountains in distance:
Wonderful views of the Great Salt Lake:
It is not pollution that you can spot in the water, but only mud from the lake floor. In fact, the lake isn't deep at all, its max depth is 10.70 meters. But it is big : 4 400km². Wikipedia is my best friend ^^
Nice little snack, as usual, no trolley is used in DL domestic First.
Lovely views over Hoover Dam, sad, the pilots did not mention it, but as I now Nevada, I knew where to look;)
To conclude, as promised the Yellowstone bonus. This park is just amazing, if you can go, go! Run for it! Go before the high season, or after, may or september / october are the best month, as the park is quite empty and you can have the nature and the wildeness for yourself! Should you need help to plan your visit, send me a message!
Elks, you see them everywhere !!
Mammooth Springs Terasse:
Yes, there we are:
Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone:
Upper Geyser Bassin, springs and more Geysers:
Delta Air Lines
Salt Lake City - SLC
Las Vegas - LAS
Another lovely flight, free upgrade, what to ask more...?
