Tubing down the Shenandoah River in West Virginia

River Riders of Harpers Ferry, West Virginia

Receiving safety instruction.

Amtrak Empire Builder Chicago to Red Wing MN

                                                        Union Station Chicago

After hanging out at the station for a few hours, we boarded the Empire Builder for the final leg of our journey home. 

On a sold out train, there was no room in the observation car, but we found a great space to be in the lower level lounge car. We had the back of the car to ourselves for nearly the entire journey home.

Three locomotives!

I love how they reserve the front of the coach carriages for parties of two or more. I'm always confident that my girls and I will be seated together.

Crossing the Mississippi

Back to our seats....almost home.
