Head West, Young Man...

Today we commenced our return to California and drove from Flagstaff to Kingman - via Rte 66 where we could.

Signals and radio transmissions heard on the scanner kept us guessing as to what on earth was going on, however luck appeared to be on our side.

Crookton proved to be an excellent place for morning shots, and after about 5 trains decided to proceed to Seligman for lunch - where nothing passed through the entire time we were feeding our faces.

Peach Springs saw one pass through and the return to Valentine/Crozier Canyon saw about a 10 - 15 minute wait between trains.

Check in at the motel in Kingman and we hit the road again to return to Kingman Canyon during excellent lighting conditions.

17 trains filmed today with a couple of photos to boot. A long day that seemed to go by really fast.

The weather has improved 100 percent, with the next 4 days forecasted to be very warm and fine. Today we hit 81 degrees F - 27 degrees C - it was very dry and there was a slight breeze - lots of water downed.

As of tomorrow we will be at Ludlow CA where there is no internet - no more posts for 4 days.
