A real steam train

This weekend we went to Roaring Camp in the Santa Cruz Mountains and rode a real steam engine train. It was a misty cool day and we had an hour long ride through the redwood forest up the mountain and back down. Kelton was amazed, scared and mezmerized by the train. The whistle is very loud and in the cool air it let off lots of steam. Kelton was happy to sit in our laps for the entire ride.

There is something very alluring about trains, and David and I had a great time photographing the train.
