I think it was actually RomanianFlyer's post immediately above your Sedona post that triggered it.

My favorite stretch of rail anywhere on earth (and that's saying something). I love the bleakness of Broad Pass.

Despite having worked on the Alaska Railroad at one time, I usually enjoy other railroad systems better than the AKRR, but to me the emptiness of the huge treeless plain and the massive mountains rising up (including, of course, Denali, whose foothills are higher than anything east of Denver) is a level of grandeur that is incomparable.

I hereby deem any and all photos of train travel as "beautiful" and thus completely appropriate for this thread.

Great shot. Enjoyed the views from the Heights on my trip to PIT in May. Perfect way to kill the 8hr layover from OneJet, MKE-PIT, to WN, PIT-BWI.
