Is the catering truck here? "No, but we better hurry, I think I hear the fiddle player tuning up and we do NOT want to miss the dancin gals!"

Wait. WHAT?

There are NO dancin gals way out here in the woods-well I'll be damned will you look at that!! The music started and people started dancin and partyin like there was no tomorrow full of steep mountain passes and sore asses.

"Following many of the old stage coach roads from the 1800s, the Wagon Train covers this 32 mile trip over the course of three days, camping each night at a different site along the way. We begin with dinner around the campfire on Wednesday night at Goat Meadow, and end on Saturday, with dinner, Cowboy Poetry, and a western dance with open bar and dancing.

The Wagon Train welcomes participation from owners of wagons and teams, horseback riders, and those who just want to walk the trail, pioneer-style.

If you play an instrument, bring it along. If you are a story teller, bring one to share." I did both of course. Pass that bottle to me.

Tweeter and I had a lot of fun on this trip, people from all over showed up for this wagon train and we made some new friends. One of these peeps gave us a fine new pony wagon, we brought it home in our horse trailer. It was cold at night and hot during the day. Summit Camp is at an elevation of approximately 5800', and is the highest point on the trip.

Life is good if you give it a chance.

She is my truck dog and she is cute, she also wakes my lazy tired ass up when people or critters come near the truck. She has kept me from harm many times...

The lady in white is wearing a dress almost identical to the one in which my mother got married (she rode up in a horse-drawn carriage before walking down the aisle).

Great pics. It looks like it'd be a blast to go.

the better response should have been...
"What lady in white? I didnt take a picture of any lady in white."

DUN-DUN-DUUUUUUUUN

Wisher, will send you another shot of the "Lady in white". Since you mention it, she does look rather transparent. heh

Fallen, thanks for "Wagon Wheel". It belonged in this post, I edited and put the link in. I have not seen the vid before..

If I ever went to Dollywood, this is what I’d expect the employees’ village to look like. {Love the gals, the mule, & the beautiful Lady in White: she looks like a future ghost!} ~~~~xo

PS:

Glad you liked my wisteria pix I sent~~ yours hasn't blossomed yet only cos it's too young, it takes years before they even think about blooming~~ like our vine I sent? It was planted, some say, 50 years ago! xo
