Rocky Mountaineer

By Linda Tancs

It’s a three-hour drive between Seattle, Washington and Vancouver, B.C., but why deal with the traffic?  If you believe that life is about the journey rather than the destination, then take the meandering route via rail on the Rocky Mountaineer’s Coastal Passage itinerary.  The tour begins at Seattle’s King Street station and features over two days of daytime train travel, taking in a hotel night in Seattle, two nights in Vancouver and a night in Alberta.  While munching on delectable entrees and complimentary drinks, you’ll take in amazing vistas (through oversized windows or glass-domed cars, depending on the class of service) of the Canadian Rockies.  Keep an eye out for sightings of its wildlife inhabitants like sheep, elk, goats, bears and moose.  They’re in no hurry–are you?
