Heber Valley Railroad - Out and About in Utah (and a winner too!)

Utah Dad and I got to go on the special Chocolate Train Date Night at Heber Valley Railroad last Friday evening. We were excited for the adventure and the chance to spend some quality time together. There's just something about riding a train. It's thrilling and romantic just thinking about it.

The evening train departed the station in Heber City right on time at 7:00 and headed west toward Soldier Hollow. It was a beautiful evening with clouds that threatened rain. The view was stunning--green farm fields, snow topped mountains, Deer Creek Reservoir and billowing storm clouds. We saw lots of birds and some deer. My favorite was the flock of sandhill cranes we saw in a farmer's field.

A couple of violinists played for us during the ride. The were cute and friendly and had an impressive repertoire for being sophomores at the local high school.

Utah Dad and I really enjoyed the soothing ride, the beautiful view and some good conversation.

The train ride lasts almost exactly two hours. While the chocolate wasn't noteworthy, the staff was friendly and we really did enjoy our evening aboard the Heber Valley Railroad.

And finally . . .  the winner of the four pack of tickets to Day Out With Thomas at the Heber Valley Railroad is ...
