And people wonder why I am always jumping on planes....
While I have traveled all over the US many times, this was my first dedicated railfan trip out West. I knew the shots were there, but it was way too easy to gather a memory card full of keepers. We didn't see a single cloud except for 6 hours on one day of the trip! Elevation is easy, no trees to speak of, no access issues, no lack of traffic, etc. Already planning my next trip.
