Road to Promontory

Nana and Papa set out last Wednesday on a road trip that would take them ultimately to Promontory Summit, UT for the 150th anniversary of the Golden Spike ceremony commemorating the completion of the Transcontinental Railroad. Let's tell the story of this trip with pictures, captions, and links. We'd recommend all these establishments.

First, though, the train related stuff is over on ToShinyRails:
Ogden, UT, Big Boy #4014 and #844
150th Golden Spike anniversary at Promontory Summit, UT
Caught #4014 and #844 leaving Ogden

Coyote Creek Steakhouse and Saloon
Rock Springs, WY

The Greenery Restaurant, Ogden, UT.
Known for Mormon Muffins.

There was a wall of these photos in the hallway
where the Greenery and the quilt shop were located.
Kept Jamie busy.

We had tickets for the Heber Valley Railroad today,
but alas, a derailment canceled the 3pm excursion.
