Dates:6/27/2004 - 7/7/2004
Album Info:Pictures from a 2004 family train trip across the western US. We first took the California Zephyr to Denver and spent a few days there. We then hopped on the CZ again for a quick ride to Glenwood Springs to spend a few days in that area. We got back on the CZ and took it to Sacramento where we spent some time in Sacramento, San Jose and LA (with a ride on the Coast Starlight from San Jose to LA). We then got on the Southwest Chief and took that to Williams where we spent time at the Grand Canyon. We then re-boarded the Chief for the final leg back to Chicago.
