Photo of the Week: Pure Michigan from the Friendly Skies.

Heading west on a flight out of Detroit’s Metro Airport I captured this shot right after take-off. I was like a kid in a candy store. There is Ypsilanti and Ford Lake directly below. There is Willow Run airport right above the lake. Michigan Avenue and I-94 run alongside the airport left and right. I went on-and-on naming streets, landmarks, etc.

Ypsilanti, Michigan from the friendly skies

Clear days and window seats equals always trying to figure out what city, town, state and body of water we’re currently going past and can see.

  1. Isn’t Willow Run a former great Ford plant? It seems like I learned in a history class on the subject of U.S. history between WWI and WWII that this was a huge plant that was heavily involved in war production.

    • Yes indeed! It opened around World World II time and produced until the 1970’s I believe. It now serves as an airport for smaller, non-commercial planes. It was cool seeing it from up in the air.

  2. Great shot! I love sitting next to the window and admire the panorama below πŸ˜‰ Quite exciting!

    • Yes! Love getting day flights and praying it’s sunny outside just to see views like this. Leaving around sunset/sunrise is great too of course.

  3. Awesome picture! It’s so cool to me that I live in such an amazing place as Michigan. There’s a lot of things to do and know about here, but so many people don’t know about what it has to offer!

    • Thank you! It is an amazing and beautiful state, much of which I still need to explore. πŸ™‚

      • Do you ever come down to Port Huron? I know you’ve been to The Raven (saw some of your coffee posts), but have you gotten a chance to try the Atrium CafΓ© and Ice Cream Parlor? I’m admittedly addicted to their ice cream…

      • Get to Port Huron about once a month. Love The Raven and hanging by the Blue Water Bridge. I haven’t tried either of those, will definitely have to. Thanks for the tip! πŸ™‚
