Sunrise near Mt Shasta California
Yet another road trip for us!
Soon the snow will fly and we will be cozily
staying home. We have a few more short
trips planned before then. This time we're off
to visit friends in Vancouver BC!!
We will be taking the train from Portland Oregon.

Great shots, but all the food made me hungry.ReplyDelete
Have a terrific day honey. Big hugs. :)
Wow, I know that train trip to Portland, all the way from St. Paul, Minnesota. We rented a car from Portland and spent a week at Cannon Beach in Oregon, but we also did the tour around Oregon and even into the state of Washington! Such an amazing trip it was, enjoy, and have fun with your friends.ReplyDelete
This looks like a place to really dine! That looks like an elegant grilled cheese (Gouda?), the chowders and soups divine and that in-housed brew (an ale in red) seem a perfect aperitif prior to catching the train. Yes the train schedules always see to be in flux - so you can enjoy all the scenery as time passes. Nice views, excellent trip!ReplyDelete
Enjoy your trip! The food at that bar looks tasty.ReplyDelete
That's what I call a dark cloud looming. I love the one of the hand reflection!ReplyDelete
Wishing you safe travels! Enjoy your time up here in the great (and beautiful) Pacific Northwest!ReplyDelete
the sites, the sounds, the smells...thanks for taking us along. Enjoy!!!ReplyDelete
I love train travel. Mine always consists of Cincinnati to Tampa. The seasonal changes are phenomenal. I loved your bridges.ReplyDelete
Enjoy your stay, Kathe ~~ The last train we took was to the Gatwick Airport in London. They come every 10 or 15 minutes so no problem with being late, stuck, etc.ReplyDelete
But when it was time to get off we hadn't realized that we were not on the Gatwick Express. This one was a through train and we were too leisurely in getting off.
With feet in the door we did manage to get out and all (four of us, Mrs. Jim, Karen, KP, and me) of our eight pieces of luggage also. A young man, a passenger, helped us when he saw our troubles.
Enjoy your road trip, and be sure to get lots of shadow shots (if the sun is shining).ReplyDelete
Shadows and Silhouettes
Interesting views of the bridge. It is good to relax in a train and just focus on enjoying the passing scenery.ReplyDelete
Have a great time and come back with lots of stories.ReplyDelete
Bon voyage! That perspective through the glass is really neat, i'll have to look and see if i ever notice something like it.ReplyDelete
Gorgeous! We were just in the Pacific Northwest (Seattle and surrounds), too. Isn't it beautiful?ReplyDelete
Lovely sunset, Kathe. I can imagine you coming back with some fabulous shots of Vancouver. It looks such a beautiful place.ReplyDelete
I agree with Sandee, Love all the great shots but the food has me wanting to go out for some soup and a black bean burger. I enjoy taking trains but we have found here the constant stops to allow for the freight trains makes the trip overly long.ReplyDelete
Sounds fun! I like your pictures. Winter is just around the corner!ReplyDelete
