Tomorrow I start a journey, along part of the same trail Lewis and Clark once traveled. I am going on a train trip! The train I am taking is called the Empire Builder, and it travels between Chicago and Seattle. Of course when I get on the train in Seattle I won't be traveling all the way to Chicago. I get off on a little stop 1/2 way there in Wolf Point, MT after being on the train for 22 hours. It sounds like a long time, but I am really looking forward to it. It is something I have always wanted to do. Hopefully it will be relaxing. I am looking forward to all the pretty scenery and most of all, to see my family once I arrive! It will be the first time I get to see my new niece Avah, who I will from now on call Kitten around here, since my sister says she mews like one. I will try and post photographs once I arrive.
Here is a map showing the route the Empire Builder takes. I added Wolf Point so you can see where it is that I get off. There are tons and tons of stops along the way that are not on this map. I think it is going to be a very interesting time!
