The Ladder to Distress

Not a ladder I want to climb at this age. Fear of heights is one of the added features of the vintage lifestyle. And a 50-story flight into the headlines would really hurt, for a fraction of a second anyway.

Seriously, this is a beautiful building in downtown Sacramento, just east of the State Capitol and close to the Sacramento River. We visited the old city again for it's Free Museum Day and a great time with cousins Robert and Becky. We were the first through the doors of the Sacramento History Museum (the Railroad Museum a few doors down already had a line). First class exhibits, lighting and volunteers. Then it was off to get a snack, see the Delta King paddlewheel steamship, old schoolhouse, Towe's Auto Museum, then back for lunch and a last minute tour of the Railroad Museum. Pictures here if you're interested.
