Last Of The Steam Powered Trains

 We had a great MLK weekend outside.  Growing up in the desert I never appreciated cactus and gravel landscape, but now I love it!  It is especially beautiful after a wet summer.  It was so green, with huge rolling hills of grass.  The fresh smell of Creosote in the air was amazing.

 We went to McCormick Park for the first time in ages.  I always loved the pueblo depot and old time stagecoach as a kid and was excited to see them still in use.  Scout really liked waving to the people on the train as they rode by while we were picnicking in the grass.  Needless to say, it was a great family outing.
