Last week on Twitter I was chatting with the Rocky Mountaineer and I referenced my very lengthy list of reasons I dream of boarding a Rocky Mountaineer train. And while it’s not very practical to write a blog post with the more than 500 reasons I have to take this train trip, I wanted to share 20 reasons why I think you should book a trip on the Rocky Mountaineer!
