We left last Tuesday night at 4pm and arrived last Wednesday at 7pm. In the meantime, we got to spend A LOT of time with Ursula and experience the faded glory that is Amtrak. Above is a little slide show we put together that shows details of the train with highlights of the snow white countryside and the transition from East to Midwest. The end? A limo from the station and a super nice hotel room bigger than our apartment!
