150 Years Ago Today on May 10, 1869

The golden spike was driven and the east met the west at "the wedding of the rails." At 60 miles from my home in Ogden, Utah, the golden spike was driven at what is now The Golden Spike National Park. This is absolutely out on the middle of nowhere. In fact, prior to the area becoming a National Monument I used to hunt Jack Rabbits there. No hunting now though. Here are a couple of links showing some of the happenings going on this week. The local television station, KSL is updating this page as things happen.

The following link is informative of activities this week. There is a picture of the Union Station about in the middle. This old station is the home of the John Moses Browning Museum.
