Day Trip to Leoni Meadows

Hi everybody! It's me, Lori. I've only posted once before. Tina and I went on an outing with a group a week or two ago to a place called Leoni Meadows. It was near the area of Grizzly Flats, not too far from our town of Placerville. They had the neatest train ride that we took!! It was so fun!!

We also were able to tour the Leoni House. Each room was filled with antiques just as it would have been like 75-100 years ago.

This is their Lodge where you can stay in the summer time. They also have Cabins and Campsites. We had a wonderful Lunch in the Dining Room. It was a Vegetable Lasagne which was delicious!!

In the photo above, the train had stopped and the Conductor and his wife showed us the Indian Grinding Rock. Look at how deep the holes are!

This tells the history of the great little train we rode.
There was even a little covered bridge for the train to pass through.

This is Tina and me with the conductor:

We had a wonderful day and it would be a great side trip if you are ever in this area.
