Again, our route options were limited by snow as we crossed back into Washington on Saturday, May 21st. One of the first stops was an historic steam locomotive in Wishram, just over the border in Washington:
Next, we visited the Stonehenge WWI Memorial in Goldendale, WA. It was the first monument in our nation to military personnel who gave their lives in World War I, and it honors 13 young local men. The design duplicates in size and original form England’s famous Stonehenge on Salisbury Plain in Wiltshire.
In the afternoon, the group gathered at the Northern Pacific Railway Museum. Most of us were fortunate to shelter there during an abrupt exhibit of rain, lightning and thunder.
In a box car we found a Model A staged the way our cars could have been shipped from manufacture to sales distribution points.
These large locomotives required very large tools!
In the next post, we’ll take you to the Bavarian villlage of Leavenworth, WA. Prepare for the alpenhorn!
