The Portage Flyer

This summer we drove out to Huntsville for some kayaking and a short jaunt on the Portage Flyer...
It's an old steam train that ran in the area from 1904 to 1959 that has been beautifully
restored and is now a historic piece of the past run all on volunteer power.
We had smiles plastered on our faces the whole time, imagining how it was used way back when...

Whiles the trek was disappointingly short, the train itself is beautiful and didn't disappoint.
I've only ever been on subway trains so I was pretty excited by the clickety-clack of the rail-line.
A dash of history is always a great jumping point into gratitude...
It really makes me appreciate all the luxuries we have at our finger tips nowadays.
