This was a really looong day as I travelled from Arlanda, Sweden to Jackson Hole in Wyoming, USA. Going there is following the rotation of the Earth so it was a loong day even if your watch told you otherwise.
We took off at Arlanda at 06.30 and landed in Jackson at 14,55.  Seems like a bit more then 8h 25 min.  Not much really.

ARN -  AMS was 2h 10 min
going through procedures 1h 50 min
AMS-SLC said to be 2h 46 min. In real time it was 10h 46 min Due to time difference.
going through costume in SLC a little more then an 1h
SLC to Jackson 1h 5 min
Mostly on time except for Arlanda when we were delayed due to fog in Amsterdam.

So, from ARN at 6.30 to Jackson at 14.55, both local times, 8h 25 min. In reality it was approx
17h, flight time was 14h

And it was still afternoon so we did take a walk in Jackson before dinner and, finally some sleep.

Most of the trip was cloudy so despite having a windowseat I did not see much of the Atlantic or the USA mainland. But closing in to Salt Lake City the sun appeared. And Jackson welcomed us with a sunny afternoon. We visited the central park with an antler entry in every corner and I also visited an Art Gallery by an artist named JD Challenger. WOW, that was something I could have bought if I had a LOT of money.

We gathered for dinner at 20.00h and went to a restaurang. Food was great and they had a bison in there. We was supposed to have a session where we presented each other but the place was too busy to do that.  Dinner took 2h so we were to tired to do it at the motell.

Being up for probably more then 24h it was good to finally go to sleep.

Linking up with: Sky Watch Friday  (not much sky today but there are skies and I was in the sky as well)

  1. I like the entrance of the park.

  2. Sometimes you need to "fight" the lag even if its just to take some pics. Thanks for sharing:)

  3. Hello, you did have a long travel day. Great views from the plane. Love the mountain views. I like the elk antler arch in Jackson Hole. We usually fly to SLC and rent a car from there to get to the Tetons and Yellowstone. It is a great trip, so glad you could make it. Happy Friday, enjoy your weekend!

  4. Wow! A very unique one of a kind entrance!

  5. Oh wow, I cannot really wait to see how your lens captured this place.

    Worth a Thousand Words

  6. Wow, that's a lot of travel!! Love the antler entrance. I've seen photos of it before, but never seen it in person.

  7. Amazing. Have a nice weekend. Greetings.

  8. Sounds exhausting, but I'm sure it was worth it! We have stayed in Yellowstone quite a few times over the years, but haven't been to Jackson Hole since our now middle-aged children were toddlers. I remember the antler gateways though and meeting a bear outside our camper while I was taking the two youngest to the 'outhouse'..... scared me to death, but i think we scared the bear too!
