Roadschooling West to East – Golden Spike

119 and Jupiter meet at Golden Spike Monument Not So SAHM

I’ve got to get a little bit better at posting while traveling. It seems like the two have been inversely proportional this past year. We’ve finished our time on the West Coast and have made our way back East. One of the places we traveled to recently was a site where the continent was united (connected is a better term) and an event occurred that ushered in many changes in the nation.

It was a beautiful day to watch a re-enactment. Both trains, the 119 and Jupiter, are replicas (in which Walt Disney had a little hand in helping out with the restoration). One was and is fueled by coal (119), the other, wood (Jupiter).

I'm a photographer and homeschooler Dream = travel blogger. We move around every couple of years. That's fine, I love seeing different parts of our great country and the world. Great things: Jesus, traveling, photography, eating, sewing, scrapbooking, reading, shopping...not necessarily in that order.
