When I heard, I could hardly believe it.
“What?” I said.
“We’re riding a train!?!?!?” I screeched…and with that, we headed off to a place called Georgetown.
I couldn’t believe it.
When we got there, I heard the train coming…
I got so excited and it was so loud, I had to run away with my hands over my ears… while smiling!
But I got onto the train and my Dad gave me my very own ticket. The Conductor even punched holes in it like in ‘Polar Express’.
I loved the smell of the pine in the mountains. We passed over so many little streams and waterfalls and saw parts of trains resting on separate tracks. The whistle of the train echoed through the mountains. It was so neat to hear!
We took a bunch of pictures of the train, fun that we could see the front of it when we’d go around corners. We stopped at SilverPlume, I got a new toy train and then we rode back.
A steam train even chased us back!
It couldn’t have been a better surprise adventure!
Thank you everyone!
