Photo of the Week


Your 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 Irvine, who caught a Moment of Zen aboard the California Zephyr.

The California Zephyr is one of Amtrak’s long-distance trains. It travels across the plains of Nebraska, across the Rockies and even through the desert of Salt Lake City.

What’s even cooler is that it has a special onboard Trails & Rails program between Denver and Grand Junction, Colo. That’s a partnership we have with the National Park Service where volunteers educate passengers of the wildlife surrounding their route as they travel through the country.

If you travel on our California Zephyr before November 22 using your Amtrak Guest Rewards membership, you’ll even get double points for the entire trip! (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!
