President Obama Is Now Instagram Posting His Alaskan Adventure

President Obama is an Instagram machine, showing the world all the grace, grandeur and bountiful beauty of Alaska with myriad scintillating snapshots.
He started by taking a picture of an airplane’s wing.
Yes, the whirlwind presidential tour of the great Alaskan beyond began with an image we have seen so many times from friends and family who once looked out of a murky airplane window and thought, everyone will love a blurry image of a wing.
Well, I am here to say there is just one picture from this vantage point that is worth the time, and it’s when it comes from a seat on Air Force One.
Here is what that beauty looks like thanks to the 44th President of the United States:
As Wired reports, this will just be the first of many (or perhaps few) images President Obama will share with the nation as he embarks on an Alaskan adventure.
Wired states: “Over the next few days, the President will be posting photos of his trip to Alaska — photos we’re told he’s taking himself — where he’ll be meeting with world leaders to discuss the pressing problem of climate change.”
You can follow along with all of the world leader shenanigans at the White House website.
Or you can keep tabs on the Instagram account above, because it is soon to feature a few images from the trip.
Although, if the first image is any guide, the next posts will be the kinds of pictures every traveler seems to take: a selfie with absolutely no recognizable landmark in the distance, a plate of food that is getting cold or a picture of an attraction that sadly falls short of a stock photo.
But hey, this is all for a great cause. We will let the President's social media staff explain:
As we previously reported, this trip will also feature a wild adventure with Bear Grylls, a man who is neither a bear nor an obvious grill master.
If these preliminary postings are any indication, climate change and the growing plight of the Alaskan locals will be at the forefront of the discussion this week for President Obama.
We just hope we get to see a bit more than a nifty jet engine.
