Summer is coming to a close. School begins in just a few days. "Let's go down to New Freedom and ride a train! In fact, lets go from there and ride an excursion boat on the Upper Dells". And so we did.
The trip to New Freedom and the MidContinent Railway Museum was very exciting indeed. On the rail excursion, Nate and his granddad got to ride in the locomotive cab. Nate sat in the "Fireman's Seat". He even got to blow the whistle as we approached an intersection.
At the Wisconsin Dells we took an excursion on the upper Dells, a beautiful boatride along the sandstone cliffs. Note the famous "jumping dog".
