Traveling by Train… peaceful, beautiful, enjoyable, and inspiring

Mountain Pass on the Zephyr

Traveling by train is one of the most enjoyable trips. It allows me and Jim to see sights that can’t be seen traveling by car. We did this trip in August of 2012, heading out to California on the Zephyr from Lincoln. This is one of my favorite pics that we took from the window of our cabin. It graces my Facebook page. We ended up in Sacramento, and took the Coast Starlight to Los Angeles.

I believe next time we’ll take a lot of photos from the Starlight. The coastline is beautiful, and the little towns along the way were redolent with flowers. After our stay in LA, we left Fullerton for Arizona, where we stayed to visit with my Aunt and Uncle. We stayed at the La Posada in Winslow. What a fabulous trip that turned out to be. Our trips always allow us to sit back and talk (no, gossip) about the lives of our characters. We discuss who they’re going to be, and what adventures we’ll be taking them on next. Hmmm… it might be time for a trip to the cabin for Alisa…
