Crescent heading north Editors Pick!        
Crossing lake Ponchatrain, the northbound "Crescent" (train #20) about to make landfall at Slidell, LA. I had just dropped the wife off at NOUPT to catch this train home after attending the festivities of the first night of Mardi Gras 2011 the night before, and headed out to get this shot for her.
