Checking out Golden Spike National Monument in Utah
So excited to be here, it was our first time being able to go.
Made sure to put a stamp in our passport book
Pretty amazing , 10 miles in one day was a record for them
I wanted to go to Sacramento when I saw this sign. Only 690 miles away - hehe
Miniature replica of the exciting day the railroads met
Tony liked what this said so much when I read it to him. We laughed so much. It says,
"Irish workers wrote a song
about their work with
explosives like black powder and nitroglycerin:
Last week a premature blast went off,
And a mile in the sky went big Jim Goff.
Now when next pay day came around,
Jim Goff a dollar short was found.
He asked the reason; came this reply,
You were docked for the time you were up in the sky."
