Travel Photo Friday – Colorado River from the Train


Taken from our compartment while traveling from San Jose to New Orleans, this shot reminds me of the amazing vistas that open up while riding the train across the U.S. There are no roads – only the river and the rails.

  • This is lovely. Monument Valley area? I used to live in Arizona and lead backpacking trips through the Southwestern states, and I love that area of the country so. That must of been one amazingly gorgeous train ride!

  • What a great photo. I bet that train journey was quite something!

    Thank you!

    We were riding the California Zephyr and this spot is along the Colorado / Utah border. It’s an area called Ruby Canyon. Truly stunning.
