A friend of mine is going on a wonderful trip, and she was thinking about travel sketching. I told her about some travel sketches I did on an Amtrak train trip from So. California  to Oregon in June-July 2004. Sketching is totally/emotionally different than taking photographs, and I am fond of revisiting these. It was the only trip I stuck to a sketching DO IT, CAROL!

Steve in our "roomette." (Basically it is two chairs facing each other that turn into a bunk, and a bunk overhead.)

Parlor car.

Battery Point Lighthouse, Crescent City, Oregon.

Redwoods on the southern border of Oregon.

Oregon has (had?) tons of these themed coffee kiosks (we called them "kissox-es"). These in Albany and Eugene.

Steve and I in a motel room in Newport, OR. (He's watching the tube.)
