I wrote up the last few days of airline posts before heading out on a trip last week ... one that, ironically, turned out not to include any air travel. My journey ended up being somewhat reminiscent of an old Steve Martin/John Candy movie, but it did give me a chance to take more Montana photos, and I'll share some over the next few days.
Here's where the trip began -- boarding the eastbound Empire Builder in Whitefish. There's no better place to start a journey ... the Whitefish depot is a beautiful and historic building, and the Empire Builder is by far the most civilized way to travel through our state. Even in the high-tech 21st Century, there are few things more exhilarating than boarding a long-distance passenger train.
