Hello & welome to our 'Journey Through The Clouds,' today we travel from Vancouver to Kamloops on the first leg of our journey.
We're travelling on board the famous Rocky Mountainer, it's just amazing, today we're in one of the 25 carriages & part of the 598 passengers on board for the 285 mile trip to Kamploos. The carriages are amazing, downstairs its the restaurant & viewing platforms & upstairs we are in one the 6 domed carriages to enable us to have a truly magnificent view of the fantastic Rocky Mountains. The onboard staff just can't do enough for us, the food is brill & we're being plied with drink for the whole journey!!!
The best parts are the views as we travel from Vancouver & into the mountains, the scenery is just breathtaking, fantastic mountains, fastflowing rivers, it's a fantastic day, clear blue skies, we saw eagles & osprey nests
I now really need to thank my wonderful son in law Philip (husband of my wonderful daughter Louise) for his extremely kind generousity in upgrading us to Goldleaf passengers & truly enjoying a trip of a lifetime. Many thanks x
