All Aboard!

Equidistant from Spokane and Sandpoint in the northeast corner of Washington State sits Ione, WA. Here, the Lion's Club sponsors a train ride through the changing autumn leaves 10 miles north to Mettaline Falls. The trip lasts about 1.5 hours and includes a stop high atop the train trestle overlooking Box Canyon Dam, a suspenseful few moments in the dark while tunneling through the mountain and the requisite train robbery (all proceeds fund the Children's Theater in Mettaline Falls). Henry was ecstatic about this adventure, though kept wanting to see the train, not understanding fully that he was actually on the train! our dear friend Margarete and Purple Grandma joined us on the adventure. Fun for all!
