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!"
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.
