Today we got up really early so that we would not miss boarding The Agawa Canyon Tour Train.
We had our breakfast in the dining car of the train.
The first part of the trip is through the rail yards in Sault Ste. Marie Ontario.
The scenery heading North to the Agawa Canyon is very beautiful. It is 118 miles from Sault Ste. Marie to the Agawa Canyon and we took many many photos, here are just a few.
Several members of Canada’s “Group of Seven” artists would get a lot of the inspiration for their paintings by travelling on the train to the Agawa Canyon.
We rounded a curve and passed over an old trestle bridge.
We arrived at the canyon around noon and went for a short hike and had some lunch.
We hiked to see the Black Beaver Falls.
After about an hour we boarded the train for the ride back to Sault Ste. Marie.
Part way home, the train encountered a Moose on the tracks. We were able to view the Moose running along the tracks in front of the train because the train has a camera mounted on the engine and TV's that broadcast what the camera is seeing. The photo is not the best because I am taking a photo of the TV screen and the motion of the train made it very difficult to keep a steady hand.
We really enjoyed the train ride today and if we were ever to do this again, we would come back in the fall season as the leaves are changing colour.
To see all of the photos from todays train ride, you can find them on our FLICKR site.
