Favorite Photos – Riding the Steep Train

Today’s photo is one that was taken during the summer of 2009 when visited Dubuque, Iowa and rode on the Fenelon Place Elevator, described as the world's shortest and steepest scenic railway.

This photo isn’t a favorite just because of the picture per se – though Kai looks great, me not so much – but, because of what happened immediately before.

We were waiting for our turn to ride on the railcar when a man joined us in line and spoke to Kai. He asked Kai if it was okay if he rode with us. Kai didn’t speak nearly as much back then, and he only occasionally answered questions. So, I was surprised when, after a pause to think about the man’s question, he replied, “Okay. But, I want to sit next to Daddy.”


  1. What a perfect answer! Doesn't Kai look really excited to be riding the trolly!

  3. Yes. I love this picture exactly for those reasons.
