Antique Trains in Snoqualmie

Daily Photo:

In the city of Snoqualmie is a train depot called the Northwest Railway Museum. Quite a find as most travelers head to the Snoqualmie Falls just up the road a piece. Situated just 25 miles east of Seattle, it makes for a great day trip. We headed out from Seattle in search of all the back roads we could find to get us there and back. We left in the morning and pretty much made it a day trip. Lots of historical towns, antique shops, and countryside to explore.

Northwest Railway Museum, Snoqualmie, Washington

Daily Photo:

Near Snoqualmie Falls is this Railroad Depot, just 25 miles east of Seattle, Washington. Old trains are scattered everywhere and makes for  great HDR photos. I decided to try an HDR photo of me hugging an antique locomotive. I felt pretty small standing next to this giant. Some weeks ago this was a pit stop before embarking on an Alaskan Cruise. Whole trip was full of these heavy bellowing clouds which I love for HDR photography. I’ll be sharing more in the weeks to come. Next trip planned is for San Francisco. Got any great ideas of photo opportunities there let me know.

Little Toy Train-Goldfields Ghost Town, Arizona

Well it’s not really a toy train, but a train ride for tourist at Goldfield’s Ghost Town out in Apache Junction, Arizona. I remember as a kid being crazy enough to try and hop on a real moving train. Sounds all to crazy now, but it was all in a days thrill as a 10 year old.  Won’t be trying that any time soon. Age makes you wiser and little more sore in morning.
