Bullion Mountains

We met the next train in Klondike, in front of a backdrop formed by the Bullion Mountains. The 3 engines are working hard pulling their load through the curves and up the hill.

As is mostly the case, you need luck with train traffic. Despite the great weather and the beautiful locations, we didn’t get to see any more trains. When the sun was gone, we headed to the nearest town offering a selection of motels and restaurants: Needles, next to the border between California and Arizona.
