(Re-posted from my physical travel journal):
The views from the train are beautiful. Majestic. This is a vast and wild land. Mountains, forests, and rivers. Endless. The houses are true country living. Wood cabins all over. Massive gardens in almost every yard. At least a semi self-sustaining way of life out here by the looks of it. Imagine they sustain themselves through fishing as well. I wonder what life is like here in the winter.
