The art of transit

As I’ve written before, I don’t want to limit our ‘art of transit’ posts to just buses and trains. The point is to capture the many ways people get from Point A to Point B. Such as backpacking. In this lovely photo from the High Sierra, a couple of hikers head up the John Muir Trail to 13,153-foot Forester Pass in Sequoia-Kings Canyon National Park. Of the many passes crossed by the JMT, Forester is the highest. The highest pass in the Sierra for vehicles, by the way, is at Highway 120’s Tioga Pass at 9,943 feet, on the eastern boundary to Yosemite National Park.

To submit a photo or photos of something transportation-related, post them to Metro’s Flickr group or email them to The photos we’ve featured can be seen in these galleries on Flickr. Or click on the ‘art of transit’ below.
