The Golden Spike

One of the places that Robbie wanted to go during Spring Break was The Golden Spike or Promontory Summit. That is the place where the railroad from the East and the railroad from the West met on May 10, 1869. It was a very long drive for a little museum. We did learn a lot about the building of the railroad and the steam engines and Robbie loved it. We took Spencer Parks with us and Spencer and McKenzie were disappointed that nothing was real, just replicas. About two miles away from the Golden Spike there is this rocket display. It was an entertaining day and we enjoyed the little bit of history we learned. Preparation for my fourth grade adventure next year.
