One of the great adventures in Arizona is discovering it’s history, and what better way to experience that is by railroad, the Verde Canyon Railroad.
Traveling through wonderful vistas of deserts, canyons, tunnels and over bridges trained guides in open air observation cars bring history to life during the trip. They not only tell you about the history, archeology, geology, and wildlife in the area, they live it, and it shows in their presentation throughout the trip.
The trip is First Class, with these First Class Parlor cars that are available that serve light snacks and drinks throughout the trip, and comfortable seating to boot! Large observation windows and an overhead speaker system keep you informed on what you are seeing outside.
Here’s an example of one of many rock formations that have been named by the locals.
Figure it out? It was named the favorite by all the people on the train. You got it! It’s called Turtle Rock!
CtCameraEye endorses this trip whole heartedly! A must do if your in the Flagstaff/Cottonwood area of Arizona.
