    After spending two days with an old friend in Salt Lake City, I re-board, fall asleep, and wake up to this beautiful full moon, setting opposite the rising sun.

    Here we are pulling into Truckee! This is the Truckee reverse loop.

    I will be taking the train from Houston to Chicago in March. The scenery will not be anywhere near as spectacular as that along the California Zephyr route. However, I will try to take a few shots.
    Thanks for letting us ride along with you Mark and enjoy the sights on your trip.
