The Morning after.

Camped at East Portal, sleep is punctuated by the seemingly endless and noisy procession of trains into and out of the Hoosac Tunnel. By sunrise it gets too quiet. The sun gets ever higher, but instead of a hoped for eastbound, the first train shows up, working its way west.

Excellent capture! These days one could probably sleep very comfortably at the East Portal with few interruptions...
