This summer G and I took the California Zephyr to from Emeryville to Chicago and back. It was a memorable experience that I recommend to all.
We took in the sights from the Observation car.
Saw old engines in deserted places.
Loved the scenery.
Took in the pace of the slow moving clouds
Playing cards with new friends.
The orchards of Colorado.
Crossing the lily-blooming Mississippi river.
And pulling into the big city - Chicago.
