Worth the trip I'm thinking. Maybe 30 years ago now I took the Amtrack up that way.

I'd camp up there and those trains would come through all night long. Didn't see any today.

We wound up camping in Green River UT one time. Just really a nice place, quiet and not crowded. Our spot was pretty close to the RR tracks. After we went to bed man the trains started up. They would shake the ground! Didn't really bother me that much, as I grew up along the Rock Island line and we had a depot. Every morning at 4 a.m. that train would come through and blow the whistle, maybe wakin you up and causin dogs all over town to start barkin. Kinda comforting, really. That train don't run there no more.

Some real beautiful scenery you have. Thanks for the sharing.

The place we are in now (8yrs) we don't have any trains near. First time in my life that I have't heard the engine whistle blowing. Kind of comforting-yet kind of missing it as well from hearing them all my life nearly.

I have a permission that has a stone house right beside the crossing. Trains go through at 60 miles an hour blowing the whistle. So loud that detecting there is a challenge being so close.
They commented: "When the train strike was on back in XX we couldn't sleep-too quiet." :laughing7:
