It was only last May (May 2 to 5, 2011) that I, together with three of my high school classmates, travelled on the California Zephyr. We had attended a high school reunion in San Francisco and wanted to make the most of our trip to the US. Two of us had travelled from the Philippines, while the other two had come from Australia (Melbourne and Sydney). We had planned to see New York City and decided to take the leisurely route by train.
The photos included here are just a few of the hundreds that were taken during the train ride. It was a good thing that the train had electrical outlets so we were able to recharge our camera batteries.
