I have decided to jump on yet another bandwagon and join the Saturday Photo Scavenge which I came across over on Skittles' blog. It seems simple enough - each week you just post a photo based on the week's theme.
The theme for this week is "Memory" and the picture above is just that - a memory of the time that I rode the rails of Amtrak from Sacramento, California to Worcester, Massachusetts all by myself. This particular picture was taken on September 23rd, 2002 as we were riding through Colorado - a State that is beautiful when you drive through it but is even more so when you ride through it via the train. This turn in the tracks is in the foothills before you start ascending into the Rockies.
Even though I did a lot of inward reflection on this trip (it wasn't one of my better trips to California and there was a lot to think about on the way home), I thoroughly enjoyed seeing the country from the window of my cabin. I've driven across country more times than I can remember and always marveled at its majesty but this trip was one of my most memorable and one that I really wouldn't mind taking again sometime if time and finances ever permitted.
