The Eastern Washington Gateway Railroad traverses a marvelously diverse landscape on its 108-mile trek between Coulee City and Cheney—pine forests, swampy lowlands, wheat and chickpea fields, grassy pastures; and shown here, a tract of sagebrush-laden channeled scabland near Telford, WA. When catching this shot of a special train pulling baretables (well cars) earlier this spring, I was admonished to watch for rattlesnakes and ticks, especially prevalent this year.
