Excerpt from Message

Sunday Afternoon - Does this not look cool and inviting? But do not be deceived by appearances - when I arrived at Las Vegas & learned the temperature there was 112 & at the Dam 118 - I just stayed on the air conditioned train & arrived home last night feeling very well - enjoyed the trip & found the scenery thru Wyoming & Nevada most interesting - a new route to me! M.M.G.
