Riding the Rails

 
 



Just some things I saw riding Amtrak from Oakland to Reno. Loved going through the Sierra Mountains:






And I found these photos of the Truckee River that I took with my tablet going to Reno: 






Loved this bridge





The Amtrak train ride from Oakland to Reno and back is something that is worth the price. It was so beautiful and relaxing.

  2. I saw your link at the Party in your PJs link up. These are some great photos of beautiful scenery. We've done that drive but not the Amtrak. Good idea. Thanks for sharing!

  3. It looks like it was an enjoyable and very scenic journey Patrick - certainly a very pleasant way to while away a few hours. #MLSTL

  4. So pretty. I like the bridge. My husband has been bike riding like crazy, but it drives me nuts - he doesn't take any photos. I'd love to ride on a train again. One of my favorite trips was when we went on a train from Omaha to Chicago.

  5. Beautiful captures. Use to be fun when it was normal to take a train places. We no longer have passenger trains that I know of around me.

  8. So much fun!! We took a train ride from Detroit up to the UP for dinner and a murder adventure. Was like and Agatha Christie tale. ********************************************************

  11. I love traveling by train! My kids and I moved from Montana to Florida via train, almost 16 years ago. In actuality, I think I prefer train travel over flying. :) Lovely photos. Thanks for sharing.

  13. It is indeed a beautiful trip to make. By car too. I would bet it's even better on Amtrak.

    Thank you for joining the Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous rest of the week, Patrick. 😎

  15. I love riding in a train - always have. Something hypnotic about its motion. Plus you have the opportunity to see back yards and other sights often hidden from public view.

  16. It's always fun to travel by train where you see things differently than in the car. Such serene countryside!

    Your link is a wonderful addition to 'My Corner of the World'!! Thanks for being here this week. A link back would be great :)

  18. What stunning scenery, Patrick! I so enjoyed these photographs. There is nothing like a good train journey to help us slow down and enjoy the scenery. Thank you so much for being a part of the Hearth and Soul Link Party! Take care and have a good weekend.
