Canada: Rivers and rainbows on a rail trip through the Rockies

Canada is the second-largest country on Earth. Trust me, we just saw a chunk of it, not even half, in a 23-hour rail trip. But what we saw was as splendid as anything North America has to offer, even more impressive in many ways than Alaska. Here are Al Seib’s photos from Day 2 of our trek across British Columbia and Alberta on the Rocky Mountaineer, as we cross the Continental Divide in our bubble-topped rail car.
