Hi Rhonda! Nothing really goes off without a hitch, does it? Sorry! But I hope you'll go anyway and enjoy the experience of this "rare milage". Some people book this trip especially for the detour. I'm sending you the pictures via Kodak Easyshare. Happy Anniversary, whatever you decide to do.
I would love to see your pictures. My e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org. The purpose of the trip was to do something we hadn't done before. Took our first short Amtrak ride with grandgirls this summer and thought of doing a long overnite one to celebrate anniversary. We have seen the Rockies, but not like as described as only seen from train. Boo hoo. rhonda
