IT JUST GETS BETTER!!! Two Days on Rocky Mountaineer Vancouver to Banff – Part 2
We thought the first day on the Rocky Mountaineer train was fantastic… but it gets even better! We wake up early, like 5am early, to get on the bus at the hotel back to the train station in Kamloops.
They have coffee and tea ready for us when we board with breakfast soon to follow… did we mention how yummy the food is??
The beautiful views start right away with a stunning sunrise! One of the coolest things is that for part of the day we had a desert terrain on one side of the train with a lush forest on the other… at the same time!! Mote wildlife today with mountain ship, eagles and salmon in the rivers… but no bears for is even though they are often seen.
Today we are getting into the Rocky Mountains!! The peaks get higher and higher… and we see where where they got their name as the mountains themselves look like shear rock walls! Beautiful!! We also pass through Glacier National Park and see several glaciers from the train.
There were lots of tunnels today! One being five miles long! You are in complete darkness inside the tunnel and for short ones you can stay out on the viewing platform, but for this one everyone had to come inside and take a seat. At the end of the day we reached the spiral tunnels. These go through two mountains and you exit the tunnel 50ft higher than you entered.
We end our day in Lake Louise… ready for tomorrow’s adventure!
