Across the USA by Train

Posted on Mar 8, 2009

Traveling across the USA by train is an unique way to see and experience the variety and scale of the country. We broke up the journey, stretching it into a 17 day trip in August / September 2004, by stopping at Glacier National Park for five days and visiting Chicago before reaching New York City. Along the way we saw beautiful mountain and plains scenery and four of the major rivers in the United States: the Columbia, Missouri, Mississippi and Hudson. This, mixed in with the vibrant city life of Chicago and New York City, made for an interesting and enjoyable trip.
