The train ride between Seattle and Sacramento is a lovely trip in the fall. Going over the Cascade Range, the foliage was beautiful. For the most part, the trees were evergreens, but there were the occasional patches of deciduous trees in full fall colors, standing out from the green. We passed the Minnow Damn and rode along the Oregon and Washington coast.
We got to travel through small towns that you do not see from the freeway and peak into people’s back yards. The whistle stop train stations were cute pieces of a past we don’t see much of anymore.
