Verde Canyon Railroad Clarkdale, Arizona

One of the best scenic railway rides in the U.S.  We treated ourselves to the first class coach with a private observation deck.  The train meandered through a redstone canyon located in Clarkdale, Arizona, just outside of Sedona.
Our accommodations; priceless!
First class comes with lots of snacks...and a glass of champagne.  Plus, our own bartender....
The girls had something called Blue Sky-- a delicious concoction and quite addicting.  The drinks were also very reasonable and the food provided, sandwiches, hot wings, salad were all top quality.

Ready to roll
ancient cliff dwelling
yep, there is water in Arizona; we are going towards those red rocks.

up close...keep your hands in the observation car..
There is a rock formation in this pic called the Lizard...can you find it?

If you look closely, you will see something white high up in the treeline.  Tried cropping the best we could...think it is an eagle.  The area is rich in eagle sightings.
