X Marks the Spot

It is very quiet here in the mountains. One thing you don't hear is aircraft noise,
mainly because we don't have an airport.
You do see planes flying over...mind you I said see , not hear. They are usually so high you can't actually spot them, but the jet stream behind them. We always try to guess where they are headed..
There is one noisy aircraft I hear going over(once a day), and it is a smaller plane headed from Denver to Durango.


  1. Our airport is to the south of the city, and the flight paths don't get sent over the city. We do see planes at cruising altitude way up though, and the odd light aircraft and helicopter. Lovely sky!

  2. X marks the spot? Hope that they were miles apart!

  3. Dearest Janey,
    That is one of the most attractive side of living there I guess; the tranquility and being more one with nature!

  4. Those streems we see a lot here, living 30 km from Schiphol airport and we also hear them.
