The most interesting people travel by train…
…I know, I met them on the trip of a lifetime, coast to coast on Amtrak. Four nights and four days. Jacksonville Florida to San Francisco California aboard three remarkable train routes; Silver Meteor, Capitol Limited, and California Zephyr.
The trip was my return home from a week of travel in Florida. I flew in, and returned by rail. My schedule was arranged with long layovers in Washington DC and Chicago. While waiting for my connections, I wandered about in each city. Once aboard the California Zephyr, I spent two days and nights writing, resting, chatting with people, and gazing at the passing scenery.
The first story about my journey is due for publication in January in ByWAYS Magazine. Until then, here are a few snaps of my trip. Click on the top left photo to see all full-sized.
