On our upcoming Californian vacation we will be checking out the Yosemite Mountain Sugar Pine Railroad. This is right up Gerry’s alley, (being his job is a traffic supervisor at the mining company he works at), but I think I can have a lot of fun there as well.
This is a great chance of experiencing travel of ye old past in a Logger Steam Train, although not as fast as modern transportation, it sure is a lot more interesting and much better than sitting in traffic. We are very much looking forward to this trip around the woods.
There is also a moonlight special, which is a tour which occurs in the evening, and is very popular, as there is something uniquely wonderful about the enjoying a old fashioned train ride underneath the nights sky.
There will be plenty to do on this Yosemite Mountain adventure. Gerry and I are really excited to pan for real gold at Gold Rush City. Here, the instructor will show you how to search for this yellow treasure, just like they had in the past. Who knows, maybe we will strike it rich and pay for our next trip with the gold that we find? Even if we won’t, it will still be a lot of fun just to look for it. We are very excited about this stop on our trip.
