432--- along the Great River  Contributor's Pick!       
Having passed our house in Rockland earlier--- We have now caught up with the same westbound that was still out and running ahead of Amtk7--- between La Crosse, Wisconsin and Winona, Minnesota! This is on the western or Minnesota side of the Great River Valley, thus the tree covered sandstone hills on the other side of the river are in Wisconsin. Sometimes when you can see across the river, you might see a BNSF train racing for the St Croix Tower interlocking which is the beginning of the "joint double track" into St Paul and the once busy Union Depot where the "Great Northern Pacific" as some called it then ran west crossing the Rocky Mountains to the Pacific ocean and the cities of Seattle, Tacoma and Portland!
