Snow train

Hi all,
You know how sometimes you don't have anything new to say and then
all of the sudden, there's too much to say?
At least I'll have a few new posts coming about :)

Today I'm going to show you a few photos from the recent trip
my hubby and I took up to Reno on the snow train.

If you have never taken a trip on the train before, then I am suggesting you try it.
The seats are great, tons of leg room and comfy and a huge
picture window to gaze out of.
If you are in the need for a stress free, easy going trip then this
is the way to go.
Normally it takes about 1 and 1/2 hours for us to drive to Reno but on the train it took us 3 hours. So, take a book or magazine or just sit and enjoy the view of where ever you are going.
I am in love with this way of traveling!
If you are in need of company, just go and hang out in the viewing car where both
sides of the train are all windows all the way up onto the ceiling or take a seat in the on board restaurant.

As for my hubby and I, we just enjoyed sitting together watching the snow.
So romantic!

The last few pics are from the windows of our hotel room!
We were so surprised when we entered the room, two of the walls were all windows! And being on the 23rd floor, gave us fantastic views.

Our trip this time was just over night, but we promised each
other that we would come back soon and spend more time.

Hope you enjoyed our train journey and the wonderful scenery, and that it inspires you to take a little time out of your own busy schedule, to sit back relax and enjoy each others company.

talk to you soon,

What a nice trip - I loved the train rides in Germany, between the cities, the vineyards were all cut back and icy! Never been out west, but we are planning on going this summer - thanks for sharing!!

Thank you for sharing your train ride. It is something I would like to do because you can see so many things that you can't see by car. I would be able to look instead of watching my driving. I have been doing some checking with hubby using the wheelchair part time I have to be sure I can get assistance if needed wherever we go. I really like your pictures. I watch every tv show I can find when they travel by train
