No road trips with possible photo ops planned for today. It's possible I'll see something interesting to take photos of on my way to and from Skin Vet Clinic where Mac and Duff will have their ear infections which were treated a month ago checked.

Driving around and found the Amtrak station, the rail yard, and a few other photo ops.
