Savage Trip - Part 3

On Saturday July 5 Matt's Dad and sister had to head home to Oklahoma and it is such a shame because Saturday was my favorite day! Saturday we all were in Georgetown, CO and we got tickets to ride the Georgetown Loop Railroad and take a historic Mine tour.....so neat!
My Mother-in-law planned this fun day out for us and when we heard the train coming around, I swear we were all like giddy teenagers....Or, maybe that was just me??


 How beautiful is this view????? I am 100% gonna take my DuBois family here for this same experience, it was a true Colorado day I felt....like I was truly on vacation! And who doesn't love trains?
 And yes, since we went on a train I not only wore my "Conductor" pants (railroad stripes) but my 4th of July gear! HA!


 We got to ride in one of the open train cars and it was perfect for seeing the sites and pictures taking! Not so perfect if you don't want to sweat to death!
 The journey followed along side this rushing creek....very serene actually. Although I didn't get to see any animals and that disappointed me!

About 1/2 way thru the train ride we got out to tour an old mine that hasn't been working in over 75 years! It was really neat and crazy how once you went into the mine it was 40 degrees! This actually is the original entrance to the mine....
 How much do we look like tourists?? Us  + our new camera.....we are so silly!
 Ok.....this was the coolest....this is actual fossilized handprints from the miners. I am betting this mine was haunted, or at least I would like to think that. AND I may or may not have pillaged a mine rock for my own keeping! ha

 We had such a fun afternoon on the train, so glad we glad we got to do this!
After the train I wanted to fix dinner for everyone at the house Matt's family rented in Georgetown so I thought how about an all American Shrimp Boil??? It was so good but not quite a 1 pot meal......1/2 way thru we realized this wouldn't fit and we had to get a second pot going...fast! We all dug in and enjoyed ourselves! The recipe I used is HERE!
 We had been going non-stop all week so Sunday while the boys golfed us girls had a relaxing pool day and cook out back at the house! And I still might be burnt from this afternoon, really!
 Colby reminds me of me......she instantly loves my animals and wants to snuggle them all. She has 2 dogs of her own and it is true once you truly love a pet your whole heart opens up!
That is a end to a great week with family! Hope everyone has as much fun as I did!!!
