The Train ride to the Canyon

Of course we had to get the requisite hokey vacation photos 
out of the way...

 We sat in the dome and it was an amazing view 
my nose was totally glued to the window.
The photos that I took didn't work out - even though the train
was going 40mph there was a lot of blur.
 The train depot at the canyon.
 The historical El Tovar - where we honeymooned
17 years ago...
 The Hopihouse.
 And the south rim.
It never fails to take your breath away no matter
how many times you see it.

 Getting the passport stamped.

 Made a cheeky friend.
 Flirting with the edge.
 Another cheeky friend. 
This guy was doing some sort of crazy bird
dance with alot of huffing and puffing.
I managed to catch him when he took a breath.

 And the ride home.
Doesn't the weather look fun?
It was cold. 
The train ride is fun, lots of goofy jokes, music
and a train robbery.
It really was a lovely, laid back ride with great scenery.
On the way back I caught sight of 4 deer and a mess of prairie dogs.
Of which I have no pictorial proof.
I was too busy looking. 


  1. Ahhhh-so beautiful! That place takes my breath away

  2. Cool! Where does the train ride go?

    1. It goes from Williams AZ to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon.
