... going down the hill. It had been snowing pretty good all morning, but after lunch, the snow was getting harder. Additionally, it was very cold and extremely windy, especially at the top of the mountain. Coming up on the ski lifts, I thought we were going to be blown out a couple times.

Then we rode the afternoon departure which included two restored Wabash cabooses now rented as overnite (or longer) lodging at the end of the (currently) usable track, about 10 miles from the terminal. It's a pretty ride, with plenty of curves to offer additional photo opportunities. The cabooses get set off on stub tracks beside the Greenbrier River... and then it's back to ...
