The Haunted Railroad

We went up to Vivian Park to take a ride on the Heber Creeper.  It was a busy day so we barely made it in time for the 8:30 departure.  We were the very last group to board - it took us a long time to get out of the house - there were 3 adult females in our house so the amoeba factor was going strong - that's what I call what happens when there is a large group (usually family) gets together and it takes FOREVER for the group to move.  Example usage: They amoebaed to the front lawn for family pictures.

We decided to brave the cold and sit in a open car on the train.  We couldn't hear the ghost stories they were telling over the intercom very well, but I think we had more fun that way - it was a little chilly but we weren't too cold.  They did a good job and we had a lot of fun.  On they way out they had panoramas for different ghost stories.  Then on the way back all the spooks from the stories were on the train.

It was funny because the spooks all targeted Todd.  Todd had a great time - one spook got him really good when she asked if he wanted to pet her (dead) kitty.  He said yes, and when he went to pet it she had her hand in it and it attacked him with it.  He jumped about a mile high and laughed his head off.   Scott & I were watching and thought it was hilarious.

The sky was perfectly clear and the stars were stunning.

The whole family enjoying the train ride.

A couple of spooks passing each other.  The dead gunslinger on the right was really good - she had a great gunslingers swagger and hung out on our car for quite a while.
