I joined a friend for a one way five day drive from Denver to Reno.  We paid a brief visit to the Georgetown Loop, and then followed the UP with stops at Evanston and Elko.  it was as much a sightseeing trip as a serious train chasing trip, but we got a few interesting photo ops.  For the most part the weather cooperated, and the wet winter provided a wonderful landscape of snowcapped peaks and green valleys.  In particularly eastern Nevada was just spectacular.
