I was out of the house at 6:30 this morning but not for my morning walk.
We were in the car heading for Cass, West Virginia to take a ride on
Cass Scenic Railroad which is an old steam locomotive.
It was an outing from church with the Super Seniors.
Pastor drove the church bus and most of the 20 people that went
were on the bus but Ken and I decided to drive ourselves and meet them there.
It is about three hours from our house.
Our train ride didn't leave until 1:30 so that gave us some time to walk
around the town, look in the shops and have some lunch.
It is an old logging town. If you'd like to read more about it
We went for a little walk around town.
I climbed up these 69 steps. You can barely see me but there I am at the top.
A couple of pictures I took along the train ride.
Stopped after about an hour here at Whittaker
where we got out and walked around and I took these pictures
of the beautiful countryside.
Then back on the train and back to the station.
The weather was just perfect and we had a lovely time.
One last picture of a caboose.
We left at 4:00 to head back home.
A happy day to you.

A couple people asked about our Happy Trails cabin.
It is just a dry one room cabin that we are building just for fun and will be a little get-a-way for us. It will be heated and it is insulated so we will be able to spend the night in the winter. No plans to ever live there because it would be much too small and the land is pretty rugged. You need a 4 wheel drive just to get up the driveway.
We like making trails and just walking around our property. It is like we have our very own personal park. Ken enjoys playing around on his tractor and HT is really his hobby now that he is retired. It is only 3 miles from our house in town and we like living in our house with all the comforts.
