Wonderful photos, thank you!
 
It was nice to see a photo of the Winnemucca station stop. That is one of three or four stations that are all about the same travel time from my house in the middle-of-nowhere-eastern-Oregon. It has been upgraded since the last time we boarded there, just as Chemult (our most regular departure station) has.

Where in my adopted home state of I might ask. It wasn't a bad station actually considering it's the middle of nowhere.
 
 
Near Seneca, "Oregon's Icebox", which is high in a mountain valley between Burns and John Day on US Hwy 395. I am off to the edge of the valley in the pine trees.
 
I am fond of the whole state of Oregon. It is a climatically and politically diverse state, with a unifying sense of self-reliance and love of the outdoors. It is not a rich state (in money, at least), but we do a lot with what we have.

I love Oregon for those exact same reasons actually. Where I'm from we aren't really self reliant. Oregon has this really interesting vibe where local products are cherished, and people are friendly. I can't wait to move to Oregon.

Good pictures. I've ridden all the trains you did plus visited Portland and rode TriMet. Recently, I flew threw Charlotte for the first time in many a year and was totally disappointed in the crowd handling and boarding procedures. My home is in Nashville and believe we have one of the best and most locally entertaining airports in the country.
