Day Two: Part Two -- The Colorado River
The California Zephyr travels along the Colorado River for more than 230 miles, and it passes through 18 canyons. During the summer, passengers see many groups of people rafting down the river. One winter when I took this train, I saw eight bald eagles perched in barren trees, looking for fish below. This time, we saw white pelicans and mule deer.
