Some Trains Go Nowhere

On the way to Mt. Rainier is the tiny town of Elbe. Now I don't live in a big city, so when I call a town small, it's small.


They closed the railroad to Mt. Rainier years ago, and it left a bunch of train cars stranded near this town, so the town did the smart thing. Painted them vivid colors, and created restaurants and motels out of them.


Thank you ALL for all the recent attention regarding the photos from this week. It's been hard to take ANY photos at all as Seattle is always cloudy and rainy. I'm off this weekend so. I'm off to....

1. Mt. Hood

2. Vancouver

3. Olympic National Park

4. Mt. St. Helens

5. Portland

6. Columbia River Gorge

7. Northern Cascades Park

8. Stay inside my hotel and watch HBO2


Just as a thank you for answering enjoy a LARGE version of this photo to see all the nooks and cranies.
