    What a fun adventure! My daughter, granddaughter and I went on the ride to Minam, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

    “Thank you” to all the ‘crew’ for a delightful adventure. Your friendliness was frosting on the cake.

    Howard and I kept finding so many people we both knew that my daughter was convinced we’d discover we were related.

    I highly recommend this train excursion from Elgin, along the Grand Ronde and Wallowa Rivers. The scenery was beautiful.
