I’m Howard Thompson; I live with my wife in the Portland (Oregon) area. The four primary themes of my blog are photography, cooking, reading, and traveling; but there is often more.
My favorite photography subject is trains. When I was young we would go to Winslow Arizona to visit my grandparents. My grandpa would take me down to the train station is was (and still is) on the Santa Fe transcontinental line. Passenger trains like the Super Chief and El Capitan would stop for refueling and crew changes. It was all just so wonderful. Our drive from southern California to Winslow would be over Route 66; that is one of our favorite travel spots. We’ve driven parts in California and Arizona many times. Carla and I plan to drive the entire Mother Road from Santa Monica to Chicago some day soon.
