BNSF freight trains crossing the Mojave Desert in California, as seen from National Trails Highway (old Route 66) on November 8, 2013.  I-40 can be seen in the distance on the third shot.  The road passes through Route 66 ghost towns of Essex and Chambless, and the “ghost town that ain’t dead yet,” Amboy, home of the iconic Roy’s Motel (and cafe and gas station).

Photos taken with my trusty Canon A710IS, unprocessed.
