Ten random things: May 7

Ten stations stops on Amtrak's Empire Builder route:

  1. Portland, Ore.
  2. Portage, Wis.
  3. Devils Lake, N.D.
  4. Browning, Mont. (winter only)
  5. Red Wing, Minn.
  6. Cut Bank, Mont.
  7. West Glacier, Mont.
  8. Minot, N.D.
  9. Glenview, Ill.
  10. Essex, Mont. (flag stop)

The idea of taking a train all the way from Chicago to Seattle or Portland seems kind of neat, but I've done long-distance train travel before (from D.C. to Chicago) and actually it's kind of tedious. I'm sure the scenery is gorgeous as the train goes through the Rocky Mountains, but still 45 to 46 hours on a train sounds pretty grueling.
