Ronny and I took a little getaway to California last week through the weekend. Our main purpose for going to California was to attend our college friend's wedding. But we decided to go out a few days early, visit Sacramento and my grad school friend, Janet, then drive through wine country on our way north to the wedding.
A man was shooting a film! Ronny thought he recognized him but I didn't. :)
Then we visited the California State Railroad Museum. It had a ton of real trains from the days of settling the west and the gold rush and land rush. It was quite the site to see how massive they were and to read all of the history surrounding that time period.
This cute little ol' guy gave us a great tour.
This diesel locomotive was the largest!! It weighed over 165,000 tons and the wheels were taller than me.
