The typical vistas seen on a typical Via Rail train trip, especially through Canada include a green blur of over grown trees and shrubs speeding by at 80 kilometers an hour. You know its early morning but all you can see is green. Then without warning there is a break in the green blur and you are blessed with a view of the gently flowing Matepedia river out one side of the train and the Trans Canada highway out the other. A mist rising over the trees, some gentle white caps seen in the river and motorized canoes.
As it seems like the train tracks are playing with the river, switching from one side to the other it hits you in the face so hard it blinds you. The sun peeks through the mist shining down on the mist covered sleepy little town and its one major intersection…with the train. Its then that you start to appreciate all that this great country has to offer and with a sleepy coo coming from my best girl as she snuggles up to my shoulder, i ponder. What a great way to celebrate 26 years together.
