Flying over the Inland Empire

This week I am visiting my family in Colorado for Thanksgiving break. My favorite thing to do on the flight home, is to look out the window and look at all of the mountain ranges, rivers, valleys, lakes, and plains. Flying from Ontario International Airport to Denver International Airport, you often fly over the San Bernardino National Forest or Angeles National Forest. Tomorrow on my flight back to Colorado, I’ll be looking for the rivers, dams, and roads that I have learned about from the San Antonio Water Company Oral History Collection. It’s very exciting to know so much about this area, but I can’t help but think of all of the local history, especially the water history, that I don’t know about Colorado.I hope I get a window seat tomorrow so I can see all that I have learned about from the CLIR CCEPS fellowship this semester, from above!
