oopsy! I have Just got to March 1st in the book . If I hadda said "trains" I would have been making more sense...Was wondering if the railroad finally leveled the town or was that the Forest Service's doing. I saw a rusty piece of rail sticking out of the bank above the creek when I visited.
After the GN opened the 7.8 or so mile long tunnel in 1929, Tye (Wellington) was no longer needed, and it was torn down by the railroad, along with Scenic on the eastern end of the original tunnel. There is not much up there, any more.
I asked a friend if he wanted to go snowshoeing along the Old Goat Trail. He said, "No, the avalanche danger is too high."
It was one of those Homer Simpson "Doh" moments.
