About the Book
This book contains the best of a photographic collection accumulated over a period of 12 years, featuring 16 areas of the famous Cajon Pass, where upwards of 50 trains a day wind their way through sharp turns and steep slopes against an intriguing background of rugged mountains, narrow canyons and giant rock formations.
