Train Trip!

Last month we took a driving trip through West Virginia and Lancaster Co, PA. Although we didn't plan it that way, it turned into the all-train trip. We started out near Elkins, WV where we took a drive down to Durbin to ride on the "Durbin Rocket" - an 8mph jaunt up and down five miles of track alongside a small river. Your choices for seating on the Rocket are "caboose" or "open car" (both shown).

Also a big hit in West Virginia was Seneca Caverns, where in addition to the grand tour we also got to pan for gems and arrow heads (looks like Graham found something!)

After leaving Elkins, we drove up through West Virginia to Lancaster County, PA to stay for a few days in Lititz and go to Hershey Park.

love the pics. I'm glad you're being so wonderful to my nephew, as we have left him in your care until our next visit. Taylor and ari loved the panning for gems (we did it at a place near lake george) I truly love old trains which i think they are very romantic and fun and each is a unique experience. It's great if you can drag along a kid so you don't look like a geeky loser.love from aunt emmy and unka billy

Looks like a great family vacation. It seems like deja vu, all the pics of you with trains and trucks.
What belly? I don't see it but you all look great.
