Last December we took a family trip to Monterey. I was born in the area, so the trip was a fun opportunity to take my kids to do the things I enjoyed when I was there age. Highest on my list of priorities was a visit to climb on the train at Dennis The Menace Park. That's Everest on the train in the top photo, and me as a kid (also in a red jacket!) on the same train.
