Desert Horses

Welcome to my horse blog, Desert Horses. We live in the desert southwest, near Palm Springs, CA, but board our horses up in our local mountains where it is cooler in the summer. I have 4 horses, all rescues. Here is the ranch up the mountains where the horses stay.

Railroad Lodge

Today, outside of Redding, CA, we came across a railroad lodge and, of course, we had to go investigate it. Turns out, there are railroad cars that are used as overnight lodging. We were fortunate to be able to peek inside one. It was nicely panelled and you could climb up a ladder to look out the windows! Hmmm...since hubby's father and grandfather both worked for the railroad, he was overjoyed to see all the cars. There was even one from the Erie Railway! And, it has a beautiful view of the Castle Crags nearby.

I'm always intrigued by places like this. The Featherbed Railroad on Clear Lake is similar - you sleep in train cars. I'll be featuring it on my blog soon. Thanks for the heads up on this one!
