This is the time of year when wanderlust tends to kick in for me. I looked back on my calender and notice that I haven’t traveled for more than a weekend. However, this year, I finally decided to put my money where my blog is and reserve tickets on Amtrak. I look forward to taking pictures of some rarely-seen scenes in Indy, such as actually boarding a train. The train heads to Cincinnati, then down the Kentucky side of the Ohio river valley, and down the New River Gorge in West Virginia before heading into Virginia near the Shenandoah Valley. The trip will end for us in Washington DC, where we’ll spend 5 nights before heading back on Amtrak.
The trip takes place Labor Day Weekend. I plan on posting a recap of the state of our passenger rail system afterwards.
