train of thought

Jasper, Alberta train

to the lookout for this photo op



We have seen more trains during this trip than I have seen in my entire lifetime! The lonesome train whistles echoing through the valleys seems very appropriate in this wild land.

It looks like you had a lovely, lovely time. So glad you're home safely though.

Nice pictures of your vacation. You were wise to stop at a Wal Mart - I guess they are every where.
Glad you had a very nice vacation.

Ditto on this post...just getting it. I would imagine trains are indeed a common sight in Canada...those train trips are what everybody in the U.S. want to go on. Beautiful scenery...
