Trains, Planes or Automobiles???

A train-based getaway utilizing Amtrak to see a little slice of America via the rails. Someone coined the trip "Stations Across the Nation" which I thought was cute. The trip itself was four days on the train and two days based out of Whitefish, MT. (See journal http://www.igougo.com/journal-j76649-Whitefish-Out_and_About_Around_Whitefish.html)

Captivating Helena is a city of contrasts: majestic cathedral and mansions, raunchy mining past; art, culture, and a profusion of gulches - surrounded by mountains and wilderness.

More rugged and open than the forested west side of Glacier, the stark, exposed landscapes of the east side capture the essence of this park.

Montana - aka Big Sky Country - and WOW, is it ever! High, sharp-peaked mountains, flat valleys, uncrowded roads, and in the northwest, a National Park. Is it worth the long trip to see it? In a word, YES (if you're at all inspired by nature that is).

Mountain roads, cool temperatures, beautiful scenery, and absolutely no crowds made our 4-day anniversary trip perfect. It didn’t matter where we went, but we were delightfully surprised to end up in Kalispell, Montana.
