Pennies on the track

With this long standing tradition of going out to the desert to spend our Easter holiday we also put pennies on the track.

For those who have never heard of this before it is very self explanatory. We all walk/ride down to the railroad tracks and lay out pennies.

Why do we do this?

You see out there when a train comes barreling down the tracks it likes to blow its horn several times (even in the middle of the night). What they don't know is they are actually smashing the pennies flat.

Now we have been doing this for some time now so the elders (Yup Maddi that is you!) try to be creative in how we set up the pennies to be smashed. We don't want the mundane single smashed penny, what fun is that?
