After we enjoyed some snow cover scenery.
And then headed further West to the Verde Canyon Railroad for a train ride through Northern Arizona. I felt extra spoiled, we even rode in the first class train!
We started the trip with a sparkling cider/champagne toast (cider for us) to celebrate any special occasion on the train. We went first announcing 2 years of marriage.
We then heard of a 30th and 52nd anniversary, so we were glad we went first! Perhaps the highlight of the trip was when one of the older women came up to us and very concerned turned to me and said, “Congratulations, but I must ask, are you old enough to have been married 2 years???” I laughed, and said, “Bless your heart! I am 30, so I think I am old enough for 2 years!” She looked shocked. I just couldn’t stop teasing Jacob about being a cradle robber, even if the truth is I have a couple months on him!
We were lucky enough to enjoy some snacks and then see some amazingly gorgeous scenery.
Including some Indian dwellings, and even an Indian temple.
We also enjoyed one of the train guides, he loved the camera and would make people take his “pro shots” at many different angles. We were laughing so hard at his encouraging us to “work the camera” and to pose like it was prom. This is pretty evident in the shots below, as well as the 50 others we have!
