Take the Last Train To Clarkdale

Not to be confused with the Last Train to Clarksville

We’re talking about a lovely Sedona Tourist Trap, the Verde Canyon Railroad ride between Perkinsville and Clarkdale.  At the outset, permit me to say that the trip itself was Pleasant Valley Sunday material, though could have easily been condensed from four hours to two.  To be fair the experience is very anti-climactic if you’ve already done sufficient sightseeing that you’re red-rock-saturated, particularly on an overcast afternoon such as it was.  The ride is cyclically scenic and there is some interesting history, though there are no empty seats to be had and if you’re stuck in a spot with inconsiderate yahoos yammering non-stop you’ll miss much of the pre-recorded narration.

Be that as it may (as they say), one can easily catch up on the history online, and here is a promo video that you can watch in the comfort of your own computer.

I’ll add to that a pile of fun pix from an experience that you’ll want to add to your list of things to do in and around Sedona that require little movement, and even less thought.
