I think my last posting was Nebraska. I enjoyed Nebraska, but sorry to say it has the memory that caused the most hurt. As we were packing up to leave the KOA site in Grand Island, I drained the ice chest. In the process, I ducked around to the side of the porch to make sure it was positioned right, and I raised my head up and hit the corner flashing. Came pretty close to saying some not so pretty words, let me tell you. I didn't have the presence of mind to reach for the camera, or I would show you a picture of one of my hairs blowing in the breeze while attached to that flashing. Anyway, I've got one little souvenier of Nebraska that if I ever shave or lose my hair will be visible forever, I'm sure.
We also took a walk around Keystone while waiting on the 1880's train. A tourist town for sure, but in a pretty setting.
1880's train was a really nice scenic ride. And the price couldn't be beat at $22 for the 3 hour excursion. I think the grandkids would get a kick out of it, but don't know how well they'd handle the drive to get up here. Maybe in a couple of years. I thought it interesting that the attendants on the train also worked the snack stand at the half-way point. No idle time for them!
While in a train station gift shop, I picked up a bandana with the name of the train ride. I've decided to make a vacation quilt with squares representing different spots along the way. Unfortunately, I didn't get anything with Mt. Rushmore on it. It's doubtful I'll see anything now, since I'm on down the road, but I may find something on-line that will work.
Guess that's it for now. We'll say this is "to be continued"!
