Train ride on Amtrak

Amtrak is a fun ride, even the idea of getting up quite early before climbing aboard the 5:30am train. The train comes in from Chicago, so many travelers are sprawled across the wide seats, wearing pj's under blankets. We chose to sit in the viewing car—the windows extend onto the roof. Traveling along the Washington side of the Columbia river gorge, provided spectacular views. The river meanders towards Portland then to the Pacific ocean. Here are a few shots along the way, of the Oregon side.

Reflections as another train passes so closely.

Reflected majesty near the Multnomah Falls area.

White cumulus reflects in the watery surface.
