A Fun Fall Adventure!

A few weekends ago we went with my parents to the Kiski Junction Railroad for a Fall foliage train ride!

The Kiski Junction Railroad has been a working shortline freight train for the past 150 years. On the weekends they offer passenger rides along the river in Schenley. When I was in London during my senior year of college, I traveled all over Europe on trains and grew accustomed to seeing gorgeous countryside fly by through the big, dusty windows.

Max is in love with trains right now, so we thought it would be neat to take him on a real working train.

Dapper Sam, ready to board the train.

Sam, Max, & Nana check out the scenery.
Chloe and Pop spent most of their train time indulging in their favorite pastime, storytelling.
Best Pals.
It's Fall in Pennsylvania!

Sam spent most of his train time eating fritos. C'est la vie.
Max is our little engineer, a lover of all types of transportation.

What a neat way to see the world.
The kids were able to hang their heads out the window because the train went pretty slow. It made Mommy a little nervous, but they loved it!

"Worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness."
Psalm 29:2
