View from the Aboveground BART

Nature writer Chris Clarke posts where it emerges from underground Berkeley to head into Albany and El Cerrito.

A whoosh of engine and a scrape of wheel on rail, and we are gone and the residents enjoy their yards in peace. I have been riding this line, though, for a quarter century, and a quarter century of daily four-second glimpses adds up. My time riding this train has been a reel of film, each pass by each yard a still frame.

Worth the two minute read.
