Train Chasing, and Rabbit Sloth

So I headed out just to go to the store, got to the T with the Parks Hwy, and there it was, setting, not moving an inch, the Alaska Railroad cargo train not letting anyone through.Wanting to take a left, I sat there for a bit hoping the train would move, no such luck, so I took a right, instead of left,  just to drive up a bit and turn around and head to where I was going. After stopping and coming back out to the Jeep I noticed the train was just now starting to move. I thought to myself, hey, I know of a great spot to get a couple photos of the train traveling through. That’s where I headed. I waited for a bit for the train to arrive, took some shots as it rumbled by, then headed down the road. I then took a few more photos of the view over looking Rabbit Sloth.

Tomorrow, or maybe the next, I’m heading out with the dogs for a long day. The weather man is calling for mostly sunny with temps in the upper 60’s to low 70’s.
