Railroad

 

ALL ABOARD!  

The bustling beauty of the American's country side, with its rolling plains and towering mountain peaks, can make a train ride across America a wonderful, relaxing time to chat with friends, make new ones and discover the beauty of the United States.

Railroad is our conception of a trek across the United States.  The kumihimo braid remind us of the beauty of the landscape and is contrasted with the simplicity and solidness of the train tracks that guide the trip.  

See if you can capture your own "vision" of the countryside!
