The Capitol Corridor train passes through 170 miles of some of Northern California’s most beautiful landscape. In October and November 2016, we gave riders the opportunity to showcase their favorite views along the route by entering our photo contest “Outside My Window.” The contest ended on November 5, and our winners have been selected by popular vote and notified. We had over two hundred excellent submissions, and after the two-week voting period, these are the five images that came out on top.
Grand Prize: Maciej Gryko
One-night stay at the Truckee Hotel + $100 gift certificate to Moody’s Restaurant + $50 gift certificate to Coffeebar in Truckee
Second Prize: Nicholas Harvey
One-night stay at the Landing Resort and Spa in South Lake Tahoe + breakfast at Jimmy’s Restaurant
Third Prize: Craig Kuwahara
$100 gift certificate to Fifty Fifty Brewery in Truckee
Fourth & Fifth Prize: Boris Lipkin
$100 gift certificate to the Truckee Winery + $55 workshop gift certificate to Atelier Truckee
All the prizes have been donated by the businesses mentioned above and include train travel to the Lake Tahoe region on the Capitol Corridor train with connecting bus service.
We’d like to thank all of our prize sponsors and everyone who participated in the photo contest! You can view a video of the top 25 entries here.
