California High Speed Rail
In this photo taken Tuesday, July 16, 2013, farmer Kole Upton climbs into his pickup which bears a sticker showing his opposition to the proposed high-speed rail system, at his ranch in Chowchilla, Calif. Upton is among many farmers in the Central Valley who say plans to build the $68 billion bullet train have led to years of uncertainty and financial burden. Upton says his family has put plans on hold to replace almond trees on the 1,400 acre farm as they await word on the final route. "They put a cloud on your land," Upton says.(AP Photo/Rich Pedroncelli)
