Amtrak: Portland to San Jose

IMG_7069 copy

John and I just took Amtrak home to San Jose from Portland, Oregon. One of the disadvantages of air travel is that everywhere in between looks the same: airports connected by clouds. The train takes longer but the view and experience are well worth it. Passing through snowy mountain forests and beside alpine lakes, through rural back yards and city industry zones, watching seagulls and cormorants along the shore of San Francisco Bay, seeing the Drawbridge ghost town shacks sinking into the bay mud and reeds: all are a sweet experience of how America is put together.
