This morning we started a wonderful ride along the Columbia River from Pasco. Wide open spaces with plenty of sweeping curves to see the 28 car train in action.
Crossing the river at Wishram we headed up the Deschutes River canyon. Between the two rivers, plenty of folks out trying their best to reel in steelhead or perhaps even salmon. Railfans too were spotted in abundance along the way.
The line along the Oregon Trunk may not be a fast railroad but it is indeed a scenic line. Plenty of sharp curves made for great views of the long train snaking in and out.
The afternoon saw wet weather move in with grey skies as we came to Bend. Tomorrow it’s on to Crater Lake, Train Mountain and Chemault.
