Canada the Grand, by Michaela Kelly

Our 'Rocky Mountain Railtour' really embraces the wild majesty of the Canadian Rockies. As you rumble through the best of the region's scenery aboard the luxurious Rocky Mountaineer train, you'll get a real snapshot of the best of western Canada. The scenes are movingly beautiful: panoramic views of snow-capped mountains, dramatic ice fields, thunderous waterfalls and glacial lakes.

But one of our recent travellers, Michaela Kelly, was so inspired by the wilderness of the Rockies and the grandeur of Rocky Mountaineer, that she was compelled to put pen to paper. To our delight, Michaela sent us a copy of her poem, Canada the Grand - and we couldn't help but share her words here on our blog...

Artist and writer Michaela Kelly loves nothing more than to see the world and write about it. She has seen a great deal of the world having lived and worked abroad but still has plenty of boxes yet to be ticked.  Writing is akin to art as it allows facts to be imparted but in such a way as to hold the interest of the reader.  Also, from her point of view, these travel writings will be a source of happy memories when she is finally too old to go far!
