Hiking the Wild West

Sunrise and a full moon at the Grand Teton Mountains from Ox Bow Overlook

While we are hiking and enjoying the wild west of Utah, Idaho and Wyoming, I recommend you take a moment to check out Kevin Strong's blog on his garden railroad. It has some of the finest garden railway photography I have seen. Thanks to Marty McGuirk for pointing this out.

While in Utah I had a chance to visit a couple hobby shops and picked up some supplies to convert the next loco to DCC. On Don Ball's recommendation, I went with a DRGW C-Class Tsumani decoder. Brad at The Train Shoppe in Salt Lake City was quite helpful.  I'll install it when I get home.

Don Ball has a great HO layout, The Stockton and Copperopolis,  depicting the central California region in the 1890s. His website is worth a look.
