Before the matter becomes too stale in my mind, and because I said I would, not that I think anyone is holding his or her breath waiting for me to do so, here are some photos and a video of my return trip from Seattle.
The photo above is of the Seattle train station, which has been in the midst of a restoration for what seems like forever. All of that beautiful architectural detail was covered up by acoustical panels and florescent lights. They removed half of it, but I think the work has stalled for some reason.
The photo below is of the seating in the Seattle train station. Wouldn't you love to have one of these? I would.
The Portland train station
I'm sorry to say I don't know where this is except that it is a body of water somewhere below Portland and before the California border. Pretty vague, huh?
A wee video of a lake that went on forever. Maybe Diamond Lake, but more likely upper Klamath Lake, which is 8 miles wide and 40 miles long. I think you can hear a voice saying the name of the lake, but I can't quite make it out.
Going through the Cascades
Back in California
Done. No more talk of the train for a while.
