Homeward bound

Riding the rails up the coast from LA to Oakland earlier this month, I was surprised to again see dolphins as we neared Carpenteria during lunch, just like last year, as if on cue. The Coast Starlight is a spectacular way to get an overview of the west coast, and a worthwhile trip for the views alone. What a pleasant way to get from here to there...

Heading inland...

People—of all ages—waved as we passed by just as in days past, yet more proof of the continuing magic of trains. (Do they wave at Greyhounds, or jets, or SUVs?)

A view of the front of the train from the middle of the third sleeper:

Highly recommended! Go AMTRAK!

Thanks for bringing travel back to Earth. Nothing including the CAHST could ever replace the Coast Starlight route.
