A baggage-express car, a coach and a snack-lounge behind a lone E-unit: This is all that’s left of the once-great Rocky Mountain Rocket by late September, 1966. Hard-pressed Rock Island lopped off sleeping- and dining-cars service the previous summer, and now the last run is only three weeks away. The tracks here belong to Union Pacific, which Train 8 will follow east to Limon before returning to home rails. The overpass carries the main north-south runway of Denver’s Stapleton Airport, which itself will one day vanish, replaced by a new International airport a few miles north.

young married christian blogger: Guys. I get it. Singleness is SO tough. I’ve been there! During those 6 months in 8th grade before meeting my wonderful soulmate (jared the sexiest hubby in the world :):):) ) I was so alone. It’s a season of life that just knocks you off your feet, doesn’t it?! Haha. I’ve been there ladies. So if you’re 25 and have a crippling fear of being alone, WAIT ON GOD’S TIMING. His timing was conveniently perfect for me so I guess I just feel like I am the appropriate person to give you advice :) By the way, we’re expecting!!!!!!!!!
