It’s A Vibrant Green Journey Aboard Verde Canyon Railroad
By March 17th the scenic Verde Canyon has begun the “wearing o’ the green” as its rich riparian Cottonwood and willow forests awaken from their short winter slumber. It is said that everyone is a little bit Irish on St Patrick’s Day, and all ought to wear a bit of green to celebrate the holiday. What better way than to surround yourself in the green of our valley aboard Verde Canyon Railroad?
In celebration of St Paddy’s Day a selection of Irish ales will be available for purchase on the patio prior to your train ride. Raise a glass of Harp or Guinness and toast to St. Patrick. He may have driven the snakes out of Ireland, but he’d have his work cut out for him in Central Arizona!
Since “Verde” means green, after all, named for the river and the riparian corridor it creates. Celebrate springtime, St Paddy and being surrounded by awe-inspiring nature aboard this scenic high desert train, as Arizona’s Longest-Running Nature Show travels its historic high-desert route.
