In 1909 the Northern Pacific Railroad was looking for passengers to ride the rails. How about it ... Would this scene make you want to travel? Or, perhaps, take up sheep herding?

Mother's message ...
If we are reading it correctly ...
We are now crossing the Rockies. I wish I could describe the magnificence of the scenery. How I have wished for you all. It seems so selfish to have it all to myself. It is not cold although some of the mountains are snow capped.

Thank you for stopping by John's Island.
