BNSF train coming through Bonneville cut, one half mile east of Alpine, Washington. This cut was blasted out of the rock in 1892 by employees of the Great Northern Railway. The last spike of the Great Northern was driven on January 6, 1893 about one half mile east of this location, or one mile east of Alpine. The sun was on the viewfinder when I took this picture and I just aimed the camera in the general direction of the train. I probably should try that technique more often. The name Bonneville is relatively new and unofficial. Railfans gave it the name because at this place the Bonneville Power Administration main electrical transmission lines cross the BNSF railroad.
