    :wave: Hi Tyson. I don't know. I just haven't seen any post from youi lately. It could be because I haven't been on here much lately except the last couple of days. I have been pretty illl with back ache and sore arm and falling down several times. Old age catching up I guess.:curse:

    Thanks Tyson and Dick. :wave: Good to hear from you all again.

    This weekend is the first time I've had in a while to work on the layout. Originally, I was going to do the entire layout in the summer time since that's when our trip was. However, I am considering trying a fall scene on the back (unfinished) side of the layout. The gorge will stay in the summertime. The layout is big enough that by controlling the viewing angles, I think it would work okay. I am also working on a cover for the layout to keep the 1:1 scale cats out. (They think the mountains are a great place to sleep.)

    I'll post some more pictures soon.

    Hey Pa' Bear,

    That's a nice piece of work. Makes me wonder why we need to have room-sized layouts when so much fun can be had with a pizza-sized pike.

    The Other Side of the Mountain

    Up until now, most of the work has been on the gorge side of the layout. For the other side, I decided to try a fall scene.

    This is the river side of the layout.

    And this is the other end of the tunnel.

    Two Seasons

    This photo from the side of the tunnel gives you an idea of how I divided the layout into two seasons.

    An in progress shot of the fall side of the layout.
