On Saturday May 30th, Verde Canyon Railroad will depart the depot at 5:30 p.m. As it rumbles through the Canyon, the low slant of sun bathes the high cliffs in soft golden hues until the scene gently transforms into a scandalous sunset. The return trip offers a serene glimpse into the nocturnal wildlife set against a dazzling canvas of celestial bodies. As the sun slips behind distant mountains, cool air sweeps through the Canyon signaling the resident wildlife to begin their nightly rounds. The Canyon comes alive with the luminous glow of moon-kissed skies on Verde Canyon Railroad’s popular Saturday Starlight Tours. It is an evening not to be missed!
Grape Train Escape & The Tequila Sunset Limited
Along with Saturday Night Starlight Rides, the railroad offers wonderful wine tasting and tequila tasting events in First Class cars. The Grape Train Escape focuses on a select wine-producing region, and each vintage is paired with appetizers that complement the wine. The cool high desert twilight air caresses wine tasters and stargazers as the moon illuminates the wilderness, offering a rare vista from the outdoor viewing cars. The Tequila Sunset Limited offers sophisticated and sensual sipping of premium tequilas paired with delectable cheeses, Ceviche, Margarita cake and infused chocolate-covered peppers. This is just a sliver of the evening’s event, all prepared and served in first-class comfort.
