Backtracking: Polar Route to Mongolia

ArticFor our trip to Mongolia, we had a 14 hour flight from DC to Seoul before going onto Ulaanbaatar. The flight was fine, we had movies, books, were fed decent food, and slept a little bit.

At some point during the flight I woke from a nap and peeked out the window and was so excited to see polar ice!!! I think I was the only one on the plane who cared about this, but it was really cool. I’ve only seen polar ice on nature shows before, and, even though we were very high up, I got to see the Arctic in person!

I tried to get some pictures (again, cell phone camera). We were very high because of the long route, I imagine that up close the slabs of ice are giant and amazing.
