During the summer of 1981, Pam, my mother, my father and I decided it would be fun to take a long train ride. Since my father had worked for the Soo Line railroad for so many years, he did the most of the planning. So off we went on a two week adventure. Chicago to Flagstaff Arizona with side trip to the Grand Canyon. Flagstaff to Los Angeles with a side trip to DisneyLand and Universal Studios. Los Angeles to Oregon to see the Oregon Coast. Oregon to Seattle to see the Space Needle. Seattle to Vancouver for a couple of days. Vancouver back to Seattle to catch the Empire Builder going east to Glacier National Park for a couple of days. Glacier to Minot N.D. to visit Pam's parents and then back to Chicago.
Two Weeks and 8,000 miles. This was a trip of a lifetime!
