We visited the Golden Spike National Historic Site with our friends on the day before Thanksgiving. Golden Spike is at Promontory, Utah (west of Brigham City about 20 miles). It is the site where the Central Pacific Railroads and Union Pacific Railroads met in May 1869. When we arrived, we watched a Charlie Brown cartoon that taught us a bit about the transcontinental railroad, the Chinese workers that built it and the Golden Spike. The children all did the Junior Ranger program, so there were a bunch of questions for them to answer/things for them to find.
