      ... with ice, so we used the handrails to keep our footing. Next, we stopped to see Middle Falls on Hills Creek, a 45-foot waterfall that was also completely frozen. At this overlook, we had a nice view of the frozen waterfall. Then we continued down to the lower waterfall. This waterfall is over 60 feet and the most impressive of the three and the only one that was not completely frozen. However, there was an amazing cone of ice at the base of the ...

      The Scenic Route to MN, Day Five

      ... br> The Climax is one of three known to still exist in the whole world; another is under restoration at the Cass RR, about which Linda wrote yesterday.

In addition, they have a Heisler -- another kind of gear driven loco. It's currently in pieces and the husk ...

      ... possible vantage point, but it was on private property. We didn't really think we had time to get permission and still find the spot in time, but once in the general area, we found a campground with a "welcome" sign.

      This has been a mostly very good day -- full of excitement, surprise and a partial answer to yesterday's technology woes.
