Once Upon a Train

Growing up I was fortunate enough to be able to go on some very nice school trips. At the tender age of sixth grade I traveled to Colorado Springs and Seven Falls, Colorado with my class. We traveled round trip on a train (my first) and even spent a night each way riding the rails. That had to be the most exciting trip ever for me, at the time. I felt I had now arrived at "teenagedom," world traveler that I had to be. At least in my mind.

The beauty of the mountains, the landscape, the towns we passed along the way, took my breath away. So vibrant, alive, colorful. A whole new world I had never seen before. Just me, my classmates, and our teachers. It was both exciting and scary.

The morning of our arrival in Colorado we had a traditional breakfast but not at a traditional restaurant. Breakfast was served on a dude ranch. And, of course, I loved it, powdered eggs and all! Of the many activities and tours planned for us on that trip, breakfast may have been the most fun. Or at least the most fun meal. Of course, bacon and eggs always taste better on a dude ranch!

Old Town

On the open road to points west with friends, used to spend a night in Albuquerque, New Mexico. We'd always make a special stop in Old Town, a quaint little tourist spot. There was an old church, a park setting, a gazebo, lots of gift and souvenir shops, an ice cream parlor, and a nice shopping plaza. 

It was relaxing and so much fun to just sit on a park bench, chat with friends, and do some people-watching. People are much friendlier (happier) on vacation, not having to punch a time card on a work clock.
