60 Seconds of Serenity – Canyon Creek

Here’s a ground level view from one section of Matthiessen State Park. It’s a great place to visit and explore, with plenty of terrain changes, rock formations and waterfalls. My wife and I took an afternoon hike there, recently.

Hope you enjoy this video and can enjoy a minute of relaxation in the process! 🙂

Train Trip

If you’ve never taken a long-distance train ride, I encourage you to do so. It’s a lot of fun, it’s relaxing…and it includes some beautiful scenery.

This short video is from Amtrak’s Empire Builder train. This train travels from Chicago, Illinois to Seattle, Washington and also Portland, Oregon.

The clips were taken in the vicinity of Glacier National Park, as well as other locations in Montana and Washington.

Here’s an example of that. Great job to everyone involved!
