Abandoned Trains in New York State

Abandoned train

Mark and I went on a trip to Cooperstown, New York in July 2009 to visit the National Baseball Hall of Fame

 

As we drove around the beautiful New York State countryside, we discovered these abandoned trains somewhere around the little hamlet of Maryland, New York.

I Have a Dream!


 
Let's all celebrate America's birthday by watching Martin Luther King, Jr.'s magnificent speech, certainly one of the greatest speeches ever given by an American. 
 

Now if only Abe Lincoln's Gettysburg Address was also available on YouTube . . .I cry every time I see this, because I am so moved.
 
 
Happy Fourth of July everyone! Have a great weekend!
