The ( Amtrak ) California Zephyr Travels from Chicago Illinois westward to Emeryville California ,daily and also in the opposite direction: The journey takes 51 hours 20 minutes (Officially) to cover the 2,438 mi (3,924 km)Journey. during which it passes through 7 states Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, Colorado, Utah, Nevada, and California. .It is my personal favorite route, it travels through the Rocky mountain and Sierra Nevada mountain ranges where there are many spectacular and beautiful views , some places like Gore canyon and Ruby canyon are rarely seen apart from by the train, and by the rafters that see it from a different perspective… Thanks to all the photographers that have posted photos for this site on Flickr – Hope you enjoy the images …..
