The Scenic Route to MN, Day Five

A travel blog entry by wheelerlj on Aug 21, 2014

We spent a quiet night in the East Fork campground, drifting off to sleep amid an odor of coal smoke... and awakened to a much stronger one. Seems the Durbin & Greenbrier starts the fire in its gear-driven, 1910 Climax during the evening before the first outbound consist of the work week.
