Description

This photo was taken of the Union Pacific railroad doubletrack line near Casa Loma, which is part of the Donner Pass line between Sacramento, CA and Reno, NV. Casa Loma is about 3 miles south of Alta, CA and I-80. This area is very challenging to photograph as the tracks are on the north side of the North Fork of the American River, and most during the day face into the sun. Sunset is a great time to photograph, even if there is not a train nearby.
