Train travel has always fascinated me because you see places you can't see from a road whether it's across a prairie, through a mountain pass or just the backside of a town. Here are a few highlights of that trip aboard the Rocky Mountaineer.
Paul overlooking Jasper and the Canadian Rockies. At the bottom of that valley is the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge where we stayed. This is not an illusion, he really is out that far on the ledge.
On the Athabasca Glacier in the Columbia Icefield in Alberta.
We saw some amazing wildlife including bears, elk, moose, Rocky Mountain goats and this big horn sheep. Isn't he incredible? I took this from inside our car! I thought he was going to butt the hood.
This is my favorite photo taken at Lake Louise where we stayed at the The Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise one of the most gorgeous hotels I have ever seen. This was our view from the hotel room. The scenery doesn't get any better than this!
