Wake up to some of the most magnificent scenery in the world! We'll pass Mt. Robson, the highest peak in the Canadian Rockies, wend our way through Yellowhead (Tete Jaune) Pass and descend into the mountain town of Jasper at 11am (MT). We depart at 12:20, allowing for plenty of mountain air and leg- stretching. Workshops through the afternoon. In late afternoon we arrive in Edmonton, with a chance to stretch our legs, then we're off again. Starting at 8:30pm as we roll across the prairies, through small towns like Biggar and Viking, we'll be rocking and reeling till midnight in the performance car.

This night on board features a full compliment of music and song!
