Chicago - Minneapolis/ St. Paul - Fargo - Glacier National Park - Spokane - Portland - Seattle
Take a trip on one of America's most scenic train rides. Experience city landscapes, urban areas, river hollows, cross the Mississippi River, roll through the Great Plains, approach the Rocky Mountains. View Glacier National Park at sunset westbound or wake up to its majestic splendor eastbound.
Gain a taste of the scenic Columbia River Gorge on your way to Portland, one of the Northwest's premier cities.
This from-the-train photographic essay begins at Portland, starting at one of the West Coast terminals and heads east to enjoy to the fullest the grand Glacier National Park's forests, mountains, streams and canyons.
More photos of the eastern part of the trip, including the Twin Cites and along the Mississippi River and Wisconsin, will be added in the future.
