As you know, my brother, Randy, and I are on a trip to recapture the lands of our youth for his sixtieth birthday. The first leg of our journey was a cross-country train trip from Portland, Oregon to Chicago. These few pictures fit the Sunday Stills, the next challenge: Landscapes.
The landscape stills I took wouldn’t hold still since the train was moving along at a pretty good clip. I took most of the train pictures with my cell phone because it was so handy. We went through the mountains at night. Early in the morning we saw Glacier National Park, which of course closed, due to the government shutdown.
Soon after that, there were no more mountains, and the views looked like this.
Montana went on for most of the trip. This photo almost looks fake or like a bad water color painting. And… even if the train were not moving, it was anything but still. I think that the wind is never still in Montana.
