It's official, Carrie and I are Boonies. We've lived in Boone, Iowa, now for a little over 2 years, but we finally road the illustrious Boone Scenic Valley Railroad. It was AWESOME!
You need to check out their website (http://www.scenic-valleyrr.com/) and listen to the Boone Scenic Valley Railroad theme song. We took the coach train to Frasier. We went over a amazing (and bit frightening) high bridge, crossed the Des Moines River, enjoyed our 22 mile round trip and saw the gorgeous Boone County fall colors. The trees were just beginning to change color!!
We road with our neighbors Tino and Morgan. You can enjoy the poem I wrote about them here: http://mattproctor.blogspot.com/2006/07/ode-to-my-5th-street-neighbors.html
In my next blog entry, will post some of their wedding pics!!
