It's me. Liz. You probably don't remember me since I've done one post in the last six months. Well, last night my good friends Charleigh and Cheyanne put on a little show at Why Sound in Logan. PS - they did awesome.
On the way home today I mentioned that I've never been to Promontory Point to see the original Golden Spike. I was with Carson and he'd n
ever been there either so we decided, why not?
I'm sure you're curious, so here's some fun facts I learned (or probably actually re-learned) today.
- The original golden spike is not at Promontory Point, but is on display at Stanford University. That was a let down.
- The Jupiter was a wood burning engine that I believe came from the west. I was really disoriented there so I'm not exactly sure. If it wasn't west, it was east.
- The 119 was a coal burning steam engine that came from the east (or the west.)
- Carson can't compete with the 119 engineer's mustache.
- The Central Pacific Railroad progressed by about 8 inches a day through the Sierra Nevada's
- Someone from Hitler, Germany visited the National Historic Site sometime in the last week
Two thumbs up for trains
