On Camping By Train Tracks: More appealing than you might imagine

Camping by train tracks -- that doesn't sound particularly appealing, but we've done it at least twice and loved it. The train tracks at Palouse State Park  are tucked into the terrain in a very unique way. I ran to the bridge built in the year I was born 65 years ago to try to get photos of the freight trains going under it every time I heard their distant sound. Although train travel will never be what it was -- in America at least -- you gotta love a train. -gw
