Golden Spike visit ideas

From: "Randy Hees"

I am trying to burn some vacation days before they turn to dust, and am doing a drive next week that includes the Golden Spike National Monument most of Thursday 8/23.

So, what do I need to see. I plan on doing both driving loops. I will walk the grade where appropriate. I will visit the visitor center. I will get to see the locos... Ideas welcome.

I have downloaded the various documents on their web site including the Cultural resource inventory.
