The Amtrak journey to San Francisco - a two day trip

. The train to Los Angeles was two hours late but after we had a little walkabout I was all installed in my ‘roomette’ for my trip to San Francisco.
Just west of Grand Junction the train went through Ruby Canyon in Utah .. which proved that ‘when you have seen one canyon, you ain’t seen them all’. Fairly wide and not as high as Colorado , the canyon had red, purple and ruby colours in its sedimentary rocks, with occasional flashes of dense green from the trees growing along the river rushing through the canyon floor.
With great regret I made my way to dinner as the sun was setting … but what a pleasing image to retain on the final day in the great South West of America.
It was a two day trip to San Francisco (where most of the time was spent socialising).
