Canadian train 7/29-7/30

We were touring in Vancouver for most of 7/29. After dinner we boarded the VIA Rail Canadian train. Our sleeper unit was very small but contained bunk beds, a toilet, and a sink. We were on the train from 8:30pm (7/29) until 4:15pm (7/30). It was very nice viewing the scenery from a dome car and the panorama car. Although we saw low mountains with forests and streams for most of the train ride, the Canadian Rockies started in the early afternoon of 7/30, with a glacier. The food in the dining car was excellent. We left the train in Jasper, Alberta, Canada. We are at the Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge for two days.
