Somewhere in NavadaSaturday MorningDear MamaWe got started safely last night and are having just the very best possible time. The weather is perfect and as there are only two other people in the car besides us four, we have lots of room, and every thing just our own way. We have been enjoying the most beautiful views all morning I hadn't the least idea that we would see so much really truly mountain country When I woke up this morning we were still in the snow sheds and the car08558was stuffy and headachy. I couldnt see much but as soon as I got the window open (much to the porter and conductors horror), I knew that we were in the mountains for the air had a delicious, snowy snap about it that I never felt any where else. I forgot all about the stuffiness in my head and have been in a constant state of healthy rejoycing ever since, even though we are down in the sage brush country now. I didn't expect the trip to be so much fun, but its08558
