Remarks & Notes 
The sun was just coming off the northeastern horizon when I first made out the distant silhouette of a train through my binoculars, having just began the descent from Grass Lake. At that point, Mount Shasta was completely blocked by a bank of morning fog. But as the minutes went by and the sound of dynamic braking grew louder, the fog gradually dropped, and by the time the southbound Z train entered the scene in front of me, the mountain had emerged in all its glory.
