Bucket List Item: Traveling from West Coast to East Coast by Train


One of my Bucket List items has been to take the train across the country, from West to East, in a deluxe car. So, here I am, doing it! Each section of the US is so different: The desert beauty of New Mexico, for instance, is captivating – on the one side are variegated mountains, showing the geological uplift of eons ago and on the other side are stark, vast low-lying deserts stretching to the horizon. Sitting in the dome car, I see so many beautiful vistas that could be used to teach perspective and other math and drawing concepts – I just might make another edition of Math Drawings, some day, using a few of these vistas!
