I wondered where we might go today, Kay - wonderful pictures of trestles and trains and tunnels, - remind me of the Rockies, of course.

Our friend David from California came to Bellingham for the weekend so we took him to our trestle in Chuckanut Bay to see the trains go by from the boat. He and I didn't like the choppy water much, but he did like the Amtrak toot his horn and all the passengers waving. - Margy

Marvellous engineering, lucky you to take the trip. I've only ever flown over Switzerland, but it is on my partners bucket list to ride the Swiss trains so I suspect I'll be visiting on the ground some time.

That must be some experience traveling through those mountain tunnels.
You certainly do go on some neat adventures Kay.
