Amtrak Pioneer
Trip Highlights - Train #25 & Train #26
From Amtrak's 1996 Travel Planner
http://www.trainweb.com/routes/route_25/tp_25.htm

Blaze a trail of beauty from the high plains of Wyoming to the magnificent Cascade Mountains.

Scenic Highlights:

  • The Seattle skyline fading from view as you skirt the shores of Puget Sound
  • On clear days, the distant peaks of Mt. Rainier and Mt. Saint Helens
  • Crossing the mighty Columbia River into Portland
  • The marvelous trip up the south shore of the Columbia River Gorge, with stunning views of the Cascade Mountains, waterfalls, rock formations and other natural wonders
  • The forests of Oregon's Blue Mountains
  • The Snake River valley through Idaho
  • The stark beauty of Utah's Weber Canyon and Wasatch Mountains
  • Wyoming high plains country
  • Downtown Denver
  • The route of the California Zephyr to Chicago

FOLLOW THE OREGON TRAIL across the high plains of Wyoming, down the Snake River valley into Oregon. And for today's explorers, the Pioneer leads the way to spectacular vacations in the great American West.

The trainside scenery is spectacular, too: elk and antelope in Wyoming ... the Wasatch Range and Weber Canyon in Utah ... the Snake River valley through Idaho ... Oregon's Blue Mountains ... and especially the 130 miles of the astonishingly beautiful Columbia River Gorge. From Portland, the Pioneer turns north, around the flanks of Mt. Saint Helens and Mt. Rainier, North of Olympia your train travels along the eastern side of Puget Sound, through Tacoma and into Seattle.

And whether your vacation dreams lean toward the rustic outdoor recreation of a dude ranch or the cosmopolitan downtown excitement of Seattle, Portland or Denver -- or a little of both -- the Pioneer can make them come true.
