On the Zephyr

My first day on the train was pleasant. The ride through the Sierras was gorgeous. We sat still in Blue Canyon for about an hour due to some freight train activity so we’re a little behind schedule. The train is both an excellent way to see the country and a great venue for people watching. I’ve really enjoyed the scenery and the community.

We’re currently cruising southeast from Salt Lake City towards Grand Junction, Colorado. I brewed a cup of coffee using beans I bought at Modern Coffee on Thursday (The Sermon, roasted by Verve in Santa Cruz). Very tasty.

It’s a beautiful morning.
