Going to Iowa for the Holidays

The four of us are beginning a journey to Iowa tomorrow and will be there a couple days past the new year. We are doing something a little crazy to get there: we are taking the train. The chance for this to go sideways is pretty high, but in spite of that, I am not dreading the trip.

We have a private suite for the four of us, which – while not large – will make the journey a lot more tolerable, I believe. We will be on the Empire Builder. I’m really looking forward to seeing Glacier National Park in the winter. The kids don’t really like sitting in the car, so there’s been a lot of resistance to traveling that far in the past. I’m hoping they will really enjoy the things they see on the trip.
