Jan and Pamm took a class at a glass blower’s shop and each made a glass float.
We also got a chance to tour some of the other lighthouses on the
After a month on the coast it was time to say goodbye to all of our new friends in
Our next stop was at Kamp Klamath on the
The next day in the Redwoods took us south into the park. Jan and Pamm went on a hike into the Lady Bird Johnson Redwood Grove. It was breathtaking! When they started the hike it was raining, but it soon turned to snow. They had the entire grove to themselves. (I stayed behind because it was too cold and rainy for me.) There is a valley in the park that is a preserve for elk. They stand around on the side of the road posing for pictures. We saw a herd of 6 males, and then later a herd of 8 – 10 females.

Many of the engines use live steam to run, with sounds (and hot steam) to add to the realism. Pamm’s Dad and Uncle built the engines themselves (not from kits).
Tuesday, January 9th, Earl and Jody took us (yes, I did get to go!) for a drive up to
