AUS to DFW with dbaker for SnS

dbaker and I went flying on saturday, to Dallas/Fort Worth airport in a Cessna 172 for Steak 'n Shake. Trips like this are much more about getting there than the destination, but since we don't have any Steak 'n Shake locations in Austin yet, it's got at least something to do with the destination.

Wheels up at about 14:05, arrived DFW at about 15:35. A quick $35 (!) taxicab round trip to SnS satisfied the hunger problem. On the way back we took off at about 17:35 and arrived at AUS at 19:05. Made pretty good time both ways at 90 minutes each.

So in the interests of improving my photography, I tried to get a good picture of the sunset at DFW with some foreground interest. Here is the sunset with our plane in the foreground (click on the image for a larger view):

My gallery has several more pictures, including maps of our route.
