Now that we are all recuperating from the Sick-Fest-2013, I am getting around to looking through our pictures from the train trip up to Seattle. We sure did pass through some gorgeous scenery.
Along the California coast between LA and Santa Barbara.
Pasture countryside in central CA.
The Cascade mountains in northern California.
A picturesque icy wonderland near the border to Oregon. We also saw 3 bald eagles in this area!
The train tunnels were a thrill every time.
I've forgotten what river this is but it had beautiful erosion patterns (?) all along the edges.
I love that the train tracks often were winding through really unpopulated areas.
If you want to try out train travel, I highly recommend the Coastal Starlight from LA-Seattle.
