Autumn Amtrak

tags: , , , ,

Riding the “Empire Builder” from Minneapolis to Chicago and back. Over 7hrs each way. Big seats, even bigger luggage allowance.

By accident of fate the retired gentleman that sat next to me on the first journey was a real gem, great company. The time flew by. As he left, he thanked me for being a “great conversationalist”.¬†A compliment I really value, especially¬†now that I spend so little time with people in conversation on anything other than work. What a treat to talk of politics, buildings, the education system, family, climate, anything and many things. In-between our conversations I photographed the fantastic Minnesota and Wisconsin emerging autumn colours.

one wonderful muse on “Autumn Amtrak”

    That is quite beautiful, it sounds like a lovely trip! A few years ago I took a road trip with my brother up from NJ to MA and back, in early Fall; the weather didn’t always cooperate, with some torrential rain, but the scenery was absolutely beautiful.
