These photos come from a trip I went on 4 years ago. The starting point was Minneapolis MN, an the ending was Washington State. A total of around 1700 miles. A pretty big undertaking for my first attempt at riding trains. Looking back at these photos and thinking about this trip I really wish a couple things went differently. First is that I would have shot more. As the old saying goes “if only I knew then what I know now.” This was in my first year of shooting and it kicked off 10 months of traveling the country and I only brought (1) 32 gig card… I had to delete photos to keep taking more instead of just buying a new card. Computers an portable hard drives have crashed since then and these .Jpegs are all I have left.
On the bright side I plan to redo this route at some point, hopefully sooner than later. With that being said, I’ll be the first to say not to ride trains. This shit is not a game and it can be super dangerous, not to mention leave you with some unwanted legal troubles.
Thanks for checking these out. In the near future, I will be going through my archives of “B-list” photos from previous trips that have been collecting dust and an bringing them to light.
