On this Sunday I arrived in LaGrande, OR where I was staying with Ed and Leslie. Leslie and I went out both west and east chasing the UP in the Blue Mountains in stormy weather.


Blue Mountains

Kamela, OR

UP 5491 west meeting 4567 east

We first headed west to Kamela, where we caught a meet at the summit of the Blue Mountains. Then we followed the eastbound stack train east.
