And Then There Were None

This is written for Flash! Friday. The word count is to be 75 with a leeway of 5 words either way. The photo prompt reminded me of an old Agatha Christie book. Ok, it took place on an Island, not a mountain, but still... remote.
And Then There Were None

Ignoring the other nine passengers, Susan stared at her book, trying to read.  The creaking wheels and the motor grinding as it strained to move the old trolley distracted her. Who in their right mind lived on top of a mountain?
The car lurched and she dropped her book. Looking out the window at the dizzying scene below, she hugged her stomach. On second thought, who in their right mind accepted an invitation to dinner on top of a mountain?
Word Count: 80
