Arrived in LA tonight

We made it-- got in to LA tonight after a lovely train ride down the Oregon and California coast.

I will make a slide show with some of the shots we got on our train trip, but this post is about the period of time right after we got our luggage at the baggage claim.

At the LA train station tonite Joel had to go get the rental car at LAX, so I  heaped our stuff on a cart as Joel left for LAX.  I went out the front entrance to wait for him, (it was two hours before he was able to get back to the train station). When I got out there with my very large pile of stuff on the luggage cart, I found that a movie was being filmed at the entrance to the station.

I was really tired and sincerely hoping I could find a place to sit down in spite of all the commotion. So I was waiting to get through the crowds that were watching. The movie crew stopped filming when they saw me waiting, in order to help me through the set. With very red face, I tried to get out of there as fast as possible- but couldn't see very well because of the heap of luggage... & so I accidentally rolled my luggage cart right over the toes of what seemed to be a guide dog hiding under a bench. He was apparently being filmed as part of the movie. Fortunately he was not injured but I still wanted to find a hole to crawl into. Thought I'd share loll!

A quick post with a new slide show...

OK we are in Montana tonight... and the scenery has been awesome!

(To give you an idea-- Joel and I have taken over 1300 photos since we left Raleigh on Saturday!)  The slideshows will only take 100 photos so I had to create another one. This one has about 50 photos and should accomodate the ones that we will take tomorrow as well. Let me tell you-- North Dakota and Montana are AWESOME!!!

Here is the slide show...
