Essa Ricker and Kelsea Webster, both 15, and Kelsea’s little sister, Savannah, waved at a westbound train crew and squeezed in for a selfie as it rolled through Utah’s scenic Spanish Fork Canyon October 15, 2011.
“Standing right by a train ahaha this is awesome!!!!” posted Savannah on Facebook as the train’s steel wheels banged along the track’s steel rail.
The excitement in the trio’s eyes matched their big smiles as the train fanned their blonde hair in the wind while they posed for the selfie—completely unaware of the approaching train coming from the other direction. The train’s headlights were visible on the top right side of the photo.
