Photo of the Week!

Donner Lake California

This edition of Photo of the Week is brought to you by Lee, who snapped this picturesque shot while onboard Amtrak’s California Zephyr, which goes between Chicago and Emeryville, Calif.

While onboard, you can see Donner Lake, a 300-foot-deep fresh-water lake just inside the California state line where summer temperatures are a beautiful 75 degrees! Sounds refreshing, huh?
