For the first time, I road a cross-country train! I took Amtrak to get home to California for a holiday vacation. After I got to Chicago on the Capitol Limited, I took the California Zephyr. What a beautiful, beautiful, BEAUTIFUL train journey!
I spent most my of three-day journey in the Sightseeing Lounge car. There I could document the Aspens of the Rockies, the Nevada jack rabbits bounding in the snowy brush. Especially mesmerizing were the rosy rock formations of Utah and the cold turquoise Colorado River.
