Reba McEntire Gushes over Meeting Kelly Clarkson's Newborn Son: 'We're Buddies Already'

Reba McEntire just went on what she called "the trip of a lifetime." Traveling for two days through the Canadian Rockies on the Rocky Mountaineer, the country legend took a much-needed break from the grind of her career after wrapping the first leg of her residency at Caesars Colosseum.

Treating some of her most beloved friends and family members, McEntire spent her time doing what we all do while on vacation: eating, drinking, taking in the scenery and taking photos.

"Some [of us] listened to music, some took naps," McEntire recalled exclusively to of the trip on the world's largest privately-owned rail company in the world. "I was busy taking pictures, because I am a fanatic about that. I would sit there and go from one end of the train to the other and go outside and take pictures. We would also play games, eat and just visit with one another. The most wonderful thing about it is that you had time to sit and enjoy each other."

Taking pictures if something that McEntire is clearly passionate about. Throughout our phone conversation, she frequently brought up her love of photography, noting that she brings two or three cameras with her when she travels, in addition to her iPhone.

"It's my only hobby other than vacationing," she explained.

Not only that, but she also spends her time on planes and trains organizing the photographs on her computer. While the rest of us sleep or watch movies, McEntire is busy toying around with the vast library of image files on her computer, which are mostly taken by her.

Her trip to Vancouver on the Rocky Mountaineer, though, was spent mostly talking and eating. "Divine" desserts and "wonderful" breakfasts were aplenty, as were mimosas and Bloody Marys, and McEntire and her friends would sip on their breakfast cocktails as they listened to the train's staff explain the magnificent history of the area.

"Their hospitality was truly excellent," she gushed to us about her experience, which was actually her third on the luxurious train. "They knew so much history about the tunnels and the train tracks and when they were built. We learned so much; it was spectacular."
