Here's a few aerials from a trip yesterday, the scenery was so awesome I thought I'd share a few images. This is heading south from Salt Lake City, UT. That is the Salt Lake Valley you are looking at and they received 2"-3" of fresh snow the night before. Shot through the dirty airplane windows with my Galaxy S2.
If you're looking for an automotive connection the best I can do is that Miller Motorsports Park, Tooele, UT is below us on the other side of the plane.
The next one was taken while flying over the Grand Canyon, AZ.
