California Zephyr

The California Zephyr, the only surviving Zephyr, no longer operated by the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy Railroad, Denver and Rio Grande Western Railroad, and Western Pacific Railroad, nor does it take its original route, is the most scenic train ride on Amtrak. Operating along a hybrid of the routes of original California Zephyr and City of San Francisco co-hosted by the Union Pacific Railroad and the BNSF Railway this train carries hundreds of awing passengers through the Rockies, Colorado River Valley, and the Sierra Nevada between Chicago, Illinois and Emeryville, California every day. Although no longer served by the Zephyrettes, the California Zephyr is still one of the most enjoyable train rides I have been on.

Hope you like the pictures posted of this magnificent train trip and many thanks to fellow Zephyr passenger, the lovely Susi, for taking most of these pictures (I decided to do the selfish thing and talked to people in the lounge car and stared outside the window). This train trip is so beautiful you will have to hate life to not love it.
