I became interested in trains because of what is going on at the Port with importing the ceramic proppant frac sand, and coal and oil trains. After having seen a number of trains going through the area, I can say they are awesome in their own right. I have been posting more video of trains passing through the county on the BNSF Railway. Here are a few to sample, in case you're interested in trains. If you think they are awesome, then you might want to watch full screen HD and turn the volume up!

Author and mountaineer David Stevenson will be reading from his latest collection of short stories, Letters from Chamonix, which was recently nominated for the Boardman Tasker Prize. Climbers and story-lovers, come join us!This event is FREE and open to the public. It's happening down at Orca Books, 509 4th Ave E in downtown Olympia.
Praise for Letters from Chamonix:
"Stevenson plays his stories like a rope taut with the weight of his character's lives. You sense every subtle slackening and sudden pull. Like any good climb, his narratives become mysterious, ghostly. Out of solid rock comes magic."
— Craig Childs, author of Apocalyptic Planet, Field Guide to the Everending Earth

This startling new comedy shines its spotlight on the inhabitants of a tiny town whose insignificant and bumbling lives somehow manage to reflect and remind us of the vast wonder of life and the universe we all live in. Inspired by Thornton Wilder’s classic play, Our Town, it will challenge your convictions about birth, death, and everything in between.
