Golden Spike National Historic Site

Last month we had a lot of fun seeing the reenactment of the Driving of the Golden Spike. I carpooled with a couple others which made the long drive more fun. We got there early enough to walk around a bit and then watch as they brought the locomotives down to the track for the “show.” It was fun to watch their presentation but afterwards getting close to the locomotives was pretty awesome.
We had a fun picnic lunch at the covered pavilion next to the gift shop. It was perfect weather, not too hot with just a slight breeze. It was fun to socialize then take a group picture.

After lunch we stopped at Lee Nicholas’ and had a great time visiting with Lee and, of course, those who saw the Utah Colorado and Western for the first time were amazed!

Thanks to all those who put effort into making this happen so smoothly and a very fun day!
