Southwest Chief and Southern California

My wife and I visited our older son in Southern California over the holidays, and we rode most of the way there on the Amtrak Southwest Chief. It was a glorious ride, though we quickly realized that it would have been a more enjoyable trip on longest, rather than shortest days of the year. Here we are on an extended stop in LaJunta, New Mexico.

Big Western railroading in Cajon. We took a side trip away from my son's home town of Santa Monica to see some of SoCal's famed vistas.

The scale is breathtaking
