Merrill Field, Anchorage Alaska, America’s 15th busiest airport.
Me, coming off anesthesia and loaded to the gunnels with IV painkillers immediately post surgical.
Taken from my hospital room at Alaska Regional Hospital.
If you look beyond the shakiness you can see Mt. Susitna known locally as The Sleeping Lady, across Cook Inlet from Anchorage and the Snow Covered Denali, North America’s tallest mountain off to the right about a hundred miles from Anchorage.
