We can fill up this album after a week in the Mojave desert…. But here’s a few from yesterday, did the cholla dance out to this spot.

@Udink , somebody in 1927 competing with you for the best stargazing sleeping cot spot

1920’s political statement, one of many rocks, entertaining to read. Notice how straight the lines are.

Sometimes you, by chance, take a turn on a quiet road and notice a spot to park and enjoy the views of the cascading river. But then you see a sign at the end of the dead end road, a gate, and an old road heading into the woods. You walk along the road, suddenly there are old narrow gauge railroad tracks. And then, surprise! Railroad cars, a turntable, and more. Not really abandoned though … it’s been somewhat restored by a group of people trying to keep a piece of Maine history alive.

Passing by the old building and looking back, the tracks having divided …

This set up apparently runs on weekends from time to time. We saw some signs for Halloween ghost train rides around the town nearby.

Amazing that you just happened upon this. When I was younger, I wouldn't have cared about this sort of thing, but when my son was little (now 27) he was a train fanatic so I became a train fanatic, too. So fun!
