Here I would love to share with you our travels and adventures as international mushroom consultants. MEMOIRS about husband Pieter Vedder, who was a SCIENTIFIC PIONEER in Mushroom Cultivation Education. His practical handbook is in 8 languages and is called the MUSHROOM BIBLE: https://mariettesbacktobasics.blogspot.com/2020/08/modern-mushroom-growing-2020-harvesting.html

{Riding the Grand Canyon Railway}

We did ride the Grand Canyon Railway from Williams to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon where also the United States oldest log depot is still in use!
Pieter is inspecting the locomotive's engines...
Historic Wild West costumes...
Pieter took a 'WeFie' with the iPad, as we are now happily riding the train...
The Marshal from the Wild West Shootout, did also board the train since there will be a mock robbery on the way back at 5:00 PM...
Roaming Western Singers are also part of this fully narrated train ride.
This lady is playing a Hohner Tyrolean III 72 Accordion...
This 2 hours and 15 minute ride brings you past prairies, wooded area and desert like landscapes, ever changing.
In the center, at the very top, you just can see the home of an Arizona rancher...

A water hole (top left, off center) for their cattle... just like in the Old West Cowboy movies.
 Here we are rolling into the State Park of the Grand Canyon with Grand Canyon Village and the United States oldest, still working log depot!
Disembarked at the Grand Canyon Depot...
Very convenient indeed, from the historic 1910 Grand Canyon Depot it is just climbing some steps up, towards the historic El Tovar Hotel and to the Grand Canyon's South Rim...
GRAND CANYON RAILWAY DEPOT ←click it to see the actual historic log depot!
The Train  ←click and scroll down to bottom left.
We both will take a Motor Coach to tour the Grand Canyon's South Rim and next day we did drive back by car, for a 2-night stay at Maswik Lodge in Grand Canyon Village.
More about that in next post...
This is on the way back... the Southbound train. We had a stopover of about 3-½ hours.
Oh my!
At 5:00 PM the notorious Cataract Creek Gang did galop alongside the train, on their horses and had the train stop so they could come aboard to ROB us!

So glad we rode the Pullman as I would not have wanted to miss those excited children!
 
Williams News: Gunfights and train robberies: all in a day's work for Williams' own Cataract Creek Gang performers ←click it.
But we continue; all unharmed! It is just a great way for collecting some tip money and so much fun.
Lovely scenery...
For both of us, northern Arizona was above expectation!
Almost home! Williams, Exit 163, how we got here by rental car the previous day...
Rolling into the Depot at Williams...
After dinner, we could see the Grand Canyon train sitting on the track... waiting for tomorrows guests!
Hope you enjoyed it and next we will show you the South Rim Grand Canyon Motorcoach Tour...
The package from The Train, ←click it, was the best we could have done!

      Oh, this was really fascinating in real time and so glad to share with so many countries. The scenery, nature, the culture, history and even the food was all great!
      You could have lunch or whatever on this train but we did not as we loved to enjoy the scenery! Dinner at night and we had lots of snacks and bottled water in our back pack.
      Hugs and love from the USA,

  6. Was für ein schöner Ausflug, liebe Mariette! :-) Ab und zu muß man so etwas einfach unternehmen. Das machen wir auch. Trotz des chronischen Zeitmangels. Ein paar Highlights im Jahr ...
    Schade, daß Vergissmeinnicht bei Dir nicht gedeihen. Du meinst aber nicht andere Arten, die man auch manchmal 'Vergissmeinnicht' nennt, die aber z.B. Gedenkemein oder andere Namen tragen?
    Muß gleich los ... meine Mutti ist zu einem kleinen Eingriff in einer Klinik.

    Liebe Grüße

      Ja es war ein super schöner Ausflug und wir sollten so etwas öfters machen zur zweit! So lange es noch kann.
      Nein ich meine die echte Vergissmeinnicht aber ja, so ist es im jeden Land gibt es andere Flora und Fauna. Damit muss man lernen zu leben...
      Hoffentlich ist alles okay mit deiner Mutti!
      Alles Liebe,
      Mariette

    2. Danke, liebe Mariette, sie konnte die Klinik nach ihrer Augen-OP bereits wieder verlassen. Es ist nicht so einfach in dem hohen Alter ...

    3. Froh das zu hören liebe Sara. Na ja, Pieter ist glaube ich noch älter als deine Mutti aber er erholte sich von seinem vierfachen Bypass im September 2010, bemerkenswert! Wir alle hoffen das wir noch mit Gottes Segen viele Jahren dazufügen können...
      Liebe Grüsse,
      Mariette

    4. Erstaunlich, liebe Mariette! Mutti ist 85, steht im 86. Lebensjahr.
      Ja, Dein Pieter ... kaum zu glauben! Daß so etwas zu schaffen ist. Aber die Seele und die Liebe, auch der Geist, sie alle Drei sind so wichtig! In der Klinik lernte ich einige in dem Alter, auch 90jährige, kennen. Tolle Frauen, richtig süß! :-) Und topfit im Kopf. Die Medizin ist heute schon weit.
      Das wünsche ich Dir/Euch auch von ganzem Herzen, daß Ihr noch viele schöne Jahrte gemeinsam verbringen dürft!
      Gottes Segen und liebe Grüße
      Sara

    5. Bestimmt, liebe Mariette! Mutti steht im 86. Lebensjahr und in der Augenklinik waren noch viel ältere Menschen. Es ist wirklich erstaunlich, was heute machbar ist, wenn man Glück hat und keinen Unfall oder Ähnliches erleidet.

      Alles Liebe für Euch Beide

    6. Liebe Sara,
      Im September 2010 lag Pieter auch da, fast ohne Kräfte nach einer vierfachen Bypass und ein Stent im Nacken... Er hat aber einen sehr starken Willen und hat sich nach Therapie wieder durch geschlagen. Er hat wieder seine Kräfte zurück und macht im Moment, nach 4 Jahre, sehr schwere Arbeiten im Wald wobei er viel Unterholz zurückschneidet. Somit wird es auch leichter zum Unterhalt... Glück haben ist so relativ!
      Liebe Grüsse,

  8. Wat een leuke treinreis vol met afwisseling en entertainment. Het moet vroeger wel spannend zijn geweest, to rob or not to rob, en maar angstig afwachten of ze langs kwamen.

      Ja, te bedenken dat voordat de trein reed, men er 12 uur over deed met de stage coach vanaf Flagstaff! En dan overvallen worden... Echt spannend en ook als je een wiel brak!
      Dit was luxe en de in scene gezette robbery is práchtig; je zou de kinderen aan boord hebben moeten zien en horen. Heerlijk.

      Ja, dat mag je wel zeggen ja, erg mooie trip! Oh, er is een restauratie wagen en boven ook nog fijn dining maar wij wilden niet zó luxe reizen en houden meer van de omgeving!
      Ze hebben het werkelijk heel erg goed georganiseerd en dit zal zeker miljoenen touristen trekken , er komen vijf miljoen mensen naar de Grand Canyon jaarlijks, maar ze kunnen natuurlijk ook met de auto of met een bus tour er naar toe. Alhoewel, bus tours gaan meestal alleen naar de noordelijke rim, dat is geen State Park en eigendom van de indianen en ook erg duur om op die Lookout glazen rim even te kijken. Fotograferen mag niet eens! Wij kozen voor de zuidelijke rim met het prachtige state park. Daar kunnen we inderdaad nog lang van nagenieten!
      Liefs,
      Mariette

      It was a very exciting adventure and we loved the ever changing panorama. It is never boring and there are mountains in the distance too.
      We felt so well rested after a good night sleep at the Grand Canyon Railway Hotel. So this was a day off for both of us; nicely recovering from the long travel day before, all the way from Georgia to Arizona by air and than a long drive in heavy traffic due to the Labor Day holiday... Could not have been better planned.
      Thank you for your nice words.

    1. Beste Willy,
      Ja, het leek een stap terug in de tijd en zó mooi allemaal opgezet! Dat doen ze al tientallen jaren zo. Toen die bandieten met de paarden langs de trein op galopeerden had je de kinderen moeten zien en horen! Práchtig en zó echt. Ze schieten ook maar natuurlijk nep. En toen stopte de trein en kwamen ze aan boord...
      De rit is in de morgen en in de late namiddag terug en je kunt er eten en wat je maar wil. Wij niet, we genoten van het uitzicht en van de artiesten, omdat je dit maar eens doet. We bleven ook zo'n 3-½ uur bij de Grand Canyon voordat we terug reden maar dat heb ik er bewust uitgelaten. Komt nog...
      Liefs,
