Although one of the main draws of the Passport Express trip was the concept of crossing America by rail, we had several waypoints along the way. Over the course of the trip, we spent 2-3 days each in the cities of Chicago, Minneapolis/Saint Paul, Whitefish (Glacier National Park), and Portland (Mt. Hood). In each location, we visited museums, vista points, libraries, restaurants, explored outdoor areas and generally got lost.
Each location had it's own charm, and I won't bore you with all the details, rather try and show you with a few photos from each place.
