Taking Flight

It’s probably no coincidence that my return to blogging comes whilst sitting in the departure lounge of Birmingham International Airport.

Riding the California Zephyr

Riding the California Zephyr

The California Zephyr is a 56 hour, 2348 mile long train journey that starts in Emeryville, California. After speeding across the deserts of Nevada and Utah, it climbs over the Rocky Mountains, tunnels under the Continental Divide before heading towards its final destination of Chicago’s Grand Union Station.
