Photo of the Week!

Southwest Chief

This week’s Photo of the Week comes courtesy of Richard, who is tugging on our heartstrings with this artistic shot of two travelers onboard our Southwest Chief in New Mexico.

If you’re not shedding a single tear or humming “Lean on Me” after seeing this photo, we’re questioning your judgement.

The Southwest Chief, which travels the more than 2,000 miles between Chicago and LA, is basically the Natural Wonders Express since it passes the Grand Canyon, the Santa Fe Trail, Raton Pass, the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, the Sedona Red Cliffs and the Continental Divide.

And, after seeing this, we also think it’s a great train to take with the love of your life.
