Matt's Trip to Canada and USA

Well it was well past time for a trip to Canada and the USA. It had always been "next year" ( for about 7 years :-) ) but finally I got my act together. Some different things this time: a different tour company (Cosmos), more time to myself and a train trip on the Coast Starlight.

The trip started with several days in San Francisco before heading to Vancouver to start the first Cosmos tour of the Canadian Rockies. Then it was down the west coast of the USA via Amtrak's Coast Starlight from Seattle to Los Angeles. From there it was over to New York to start the second tour of the East Coast of Canada and USA with the highlight being the day at Niagara Falls before returning to New York and returning home. is the personal web space of Matt Jackson (mjj at
