View From My Window
Views of a rural agricultural storage facility (called grain elevators and grain bins) in Illinois. The shots were taken from my room in the Amtrak sleeper car. We were getting close to Chicago but this wasn’t a stop so I am not sure of the exact location.

Only one rule, the image must be square.
My train arrived in Chicago late, and I missed my connection to Washington, DC. Amtrak booked me into a lovely hotel, the Swissotel, and I upgraded to a corner room with a view. It has been years since I was in Chicago. I’d forgotten what a lovely city it is, even though I could see a Trump hotel in the distance. Lake Michigan is always worth it. I love train travel but it was nice to have a bed that didn’t move all night.
The mighty Mississippi as the train crosses a bridge near Fort Madison in Iowa.
Taking the train from Los Angeles to Washington, DC. A three night journey from coast to coast. After 6 months in southern California, I’m on my way back to Virginia. I decided to go the slow way. This is about one hour out of LA looking south.
