Photo of the Week!


This week’s edition of Photo of the Week comes courtesy of Leslie, who captured a great view of the big mountain sky in Colorado while aboard our California Zephyr.

The California Zephyr runs daily between Chicago and San Francisco, offering what we think is one of the most beautiful train trips in all of North America. From the window of the Zephyr you can see the plains of America’s heartland, the heart of the Rocky Mountains and the Sierra Nevadas.

Need help convincing your friends that the Zephyr should be part of your next big adventure? Send them this video by travel blogger Eric D. White, which chronicles his ride on our California Zephyr.

If you’d like to submit your best Amtrak pics for our Photo of the Week contest, please use our Facebook welcome tab to enter. Capture what you see as you ride America’s Railroad, submit your favorite photos by noon EST each Friday and we’ll pick the best one each week to feature here on our blog.
