Photo of the Week

@ubdaYour votes have been tallied from the far corners of Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and Instagram, and this edition of Photo of the Week is brought to you by Tempa, who caught this sunny pic while riding the rails in California.

Of the 46 states Amtrak serves, California is one of the busiest with 70 trains a day serving more than 12 million riders a year. And here we thought Californians were all about chilling out!

Our loyal California passengers aren't just busy going places by train, they're savvy travelers, too. In fact, more than 408,000 California residents are members of Amtrak Guest Rewards (holla, Double Days!).

If you’d like to submit your best Amtrak pics for our Photo of the Week contest,  tag your photo #Amtrak. Each Friday we’ll pick the best one from that week to feature here on our blog!


How exciting to win photo of the week!

I snapped this somewhere in the desert on the Southwest Chief heading back to Kansas from California. I told my special friend, Chase (age 15), that he needed to watch because it happens fast and the colors of the sunset in the desert is magnificent! This captured him anticipation...

Thanks Amtrak! Here's to making memories!
