29 Sep Trains Crossing the New Mexico Landscape on Route 66
When you drive across the length of Route 66 from Chicago to LA, you begin to have a great amount of respect for how the geology changes from one region to the next very incrementally.By the time you get to New Mexico, after being in the flat,desolate grassy plains of the Texas Panhandle, you are loving these colorful rock cliffs that crop up along the horizon. And Route 66 also follows the same route as the trains. This was quite a moment to look out of the passenger window and see the two trains going opposite directions,apparently ready to run straight into each other at a very high speed. Fortunately just an optical illusion!
