Amtrak Adventure

Amtrak Adventure

Recipe for an 11-year-old’s vacation:

    • Amtrak tickets from Portland to Los Angeles.
    • Her first camera—just a basic digital.
    • Cousin Angeline, a fashion designer.
    • Tickets for the county fair.
    • Grandma and Grandpa in a solar home on the Mojave Desert.
    • And a camping trip home.

Ruthanne’s pictures (500 for 30 hours on Amtrak and 2 days in Los Angeles) reveal the wide-eyed interest in anything she sees: The dining car, steps to the upper level, bridges, passing freight cars, countryside so different from the lush greens surrounding Portland, bridges, ships, patterns of surf at seaside, an old barn, and Look! Palm trees!
