Vancouver to Toronto Train Journey Across Canada

An overview of crossing Canada by train between the end of may and beginning of June 2013. The trip began in Vancouver, stopped at Jasper and Winnipeg and ended in Toronto. There were bears, trees and cities, beautiful people and maple syrup. A life-defining trip.
