This is our route...
The route will take us nearly 23 hours from Seattle to San Francisco...
What a train!!!
Leaving Seattle ... Views along the way
A stop in Portland, Oregan
A spot of wine tasting
A few views from the train in Oregan
Where some Mennonites got on!! Now i desperately wanted to take a picture of them as they were fascinating but not so easy - I did get this one of the two men. They spoke a form of German I believe and their beards and hairstyles - as well as style of dress - was really old fashioned. The women wore little caps as well as long dresses and aprons.
We arrived into Emeryville where we left the train (but will pick it up again on Monday to LA) to spend 3 days in San Francisco....a place i have dreamt of visiting since i was 8 years old :-)
