Getting bumped from our flight was actually a whole lot of fun. We left the airport with no bags, rented a car, and drove an hour outside of Salt Lake City, towards Deer Valley and Park City, Utah. We visited the Olympic Park and even took a summer bobsled ride down the mountain! That un-planned trip was a nice little gift! Delta booked us rooms overnight at the Radisson downtown and put us on a flight to Detroit the next morning. What an awesome deal, plus an extra day of vacation!

When we were re-booked onto this flight, there was only one row of 3 available for my family. They put us in the last row of the A320, which, on Delta, happens to be row 26. Luckily, you could still see a lot of the wing even from this far back.
Here are photos and a map of our route, flying East towards Detroit:
In the first photo below, you can see Virga, or rain falling from clouds before it it's the ground. In the second photo, you see a Delta 767-400 which turned parallel to us on final approach:

This was my first flight into Detroit DTW. I was honestly surprised at how nice the airport was. If you've never been there, it'll be a shocker going for the first time. With Detroit (the city) just going into Bankruptcy, it's shocking how nice the airport is. Terminal A is so long that it has it's own monorail system to get from one end to the other. Here are some photos from our quick stay in DTW:
