This past Saturday while all of you were watching college football games (Aimee), Meredith, Mariam, and I took a ride on the Adirondack Scenic Railroad. The leaves are at peak colors in the Adirondack National Forest.

Anyway, Mariam is a Somali Bantu refugee. She had never ridden on a train before, so she was extremely excited. Meredith is Mariam's mentor in a program that's sponsored by the Mohawk Valley Resource Center for Refugees.
