Eureka Park

While in Eureka looking at all the various quilt designs at the show...we also got to see the historic buildings and donated farm equipment. They had a great museum with all sort of local artifacts---reminded me a lot like the farm back home in Bluff Dale.

Farmer was definitely excited to see the farm equipment.

I was excited to see the Great Northern caboose.. The Great Northern Railroad is what really made Glacier National Park a park and also built all the amazing lodges that I have been talking about. They did not want to get into the hotel business. They just wanted people to ride their trains..and building wonderful places next to amazing vistas would help that dream become reality!


  1. When I was a kid, I always look foward to seeing the caboose at the end of the train and waving to the folks in the caboose. Choo Choo!

  2. Meeeee Too! I saw cabooses in New Mexico when I went to Carlsbad Caverns...so there is still hope to wave to the folks on the red caboose.
