Last chance to ride on the Mount Rainier scenic steam train ride and dinner

The final three trips on board the Mount Rainier Scenic Railroad stream train ride are Aug. 20, and Aug. 26-27.

Enjoy a BBQ dinner as you follow the Nisqually River then on through the beautiful foothills of the mountain valley. The train departs from the Elbe Depot for a 40 to 45 minute trip out to pristine Mineral Lake.

There you will be greeted by a good Ole’ Fashion BBQ with BBQ Ribs, Chicken, Cowboy Beans, Coleslaw, scrumptious dessert and a beverage.

At Mineral Lake enjoy the peaceful lake area, walking trail or a game of horseshoes, while listening to live music. Then re-board the train for a leisurely return trip to Elbe.

The total excursion lasts about 2 1/2 hours. Cost is $55 adults; $47 seniors and military; $35 youth; and free for children under age 4.

For more information visit the Mount Rainier Information website.
