Picture Pause - Promontory Point

Taken in 2003, off a side road off the hwy leading to the Promontory Summit in Utah, home of the spot where the two sections of the transcontinental railroad met and the Golden Spike was driven.

Too bad we arrived after the visitor's center was closed and couldn't get a picture of the actual spike.  (They keep it inside now, so it doesn't get stolen.)  But I did get a pic of the spot where the spike was driven. 

Now, if you'll all excuse me, I'm hitting the hay.  For some reason, I'm inordinately tired tonight.  Hope you enjoy the pics.  =o)
