A warm March weekend

We could not pass up an early March warm up. Saturday was spent washing the truck and riding the scooter. But Sunday was for chasing trains. Well it was actually sitting in a parking lot and waiting for the trains. and waiting .....

A few from the morning just West of Reading, PA.

In between the trains, I was trying to be creative.

And finally, Daniel intently watches the NS 21M, the mail train go by. Enjoy.

A Saturday in the Valley of Death....Death Valley that is.

In between my week in the CA office, a trip to San Francisco and meetings on the following Monday and Tuesday, I decided to head out to Death Valley. (Note - this was 9 days on the West Coast...not for a long time is this going to happen again).

To say that Death Valley was a disappointment, it would be an understatement. It may have been due to the fact that the boy infected me with some horrible, viral cold. Thanks Daniel.

I spent a few hours there from before sun the rose until mid day and then headed back to Southern CA. At least it was not hot.... Enjoy
