The Palm Leaf Corporation developed Rough Rider(TM) trips to identify our series of low cost rail excursions. We minimize
expenses by traveling without a separate diner/lounge car. Self service and informality are the rule, however a porter is
onboard to assist you with your needs. You bring the food items of your preference, refrigeration and freezer space is available.
For optimum use of refrigeration space, all cold items should be packed in square containers. Microwave and coffee makers
are onboard. Arrangements can be made to access Amtrak's diner between major cities. This is an informal trip so comfortable
clothing is recommended. Please note that smoking is not allowed onboard. Overnight occupancy of the Palm Leaf in Seattle,
Portland and Whitefish is included. Come join us for eight days of rail travel and beautiful scenery! The "Glacier
