Me, drive the train?
I'd rather not if that's all the same with you:

I can see our hotel from here. In fact I can see a lot of things from here...

Thanks to Mr Random Stranger for taking this pic:

At one point Rick was concentrating so hard it sent my camera screwy...

Here's what the photo should have looked like:

Love the photos Paul! I hope you put some on Facebook or I may have to heist some and relocate! :wink:
Did not know you had a little visitor each morning, very cute! Love the photo of Rick lying down to get out of the shot as well!
Great chapel shot! I really wanted to go on that Cog Train, maybe next time. Probably not a good idea to take Uncle Frank to that elevation!
We did make it back to the Academy though to see the 401st BG Memorial there. It was in a beautiful setting.

Super glad you were able to join us and we shall see you in Ohio in 2013!

Ta Jean, it was a pleasure.

Those hummingbirds on the platform were the icing on the cake too. :)
