Eastward Ho!

Posted on Updated on


With the sunsetting behind Grouse mountain we begin rolling east into the Fraser Valley.

One of the many improvements VIA has made since my earlier journey 23 years ago is the schedule: the train used to go through the mountains at night, meaning that all but the most ardent night owls would sleep through the most spectacular scenery. Now it leaves at 8:30 PM, which means in summer the mountains begin at breakfast and continue until after dinner…well past Jasper.
