My Lens – Morning Winter Sky In Montana

Photography From Amtrak’s Empire Builder

Eastbound in Montana near Glacier National Park
A few images, both color and black and white taken January 2012 while on the eastbound Empire Builder that runs from Seattle to Chicago. Amtrak’s Empire Builder passes through Glacier National Park as it traverses a rail route a stones through from Canada from Seattle to Grand Forks, ND. From Grand Forks, The Empire Builder cuts a pretty trail to Chicago by way of Minneapolis, La Crosse, Wisconsin Dells, Milwaukee and finally Chicago. The route is approximately 48 hours long.

The images taken are no substitute for what your eyes will send directly to your mind if you take a ride on the Empire Builder. The train cuts through some spectacular areas that I will attempt to share with more images and videos.
