Immediately after leaving Chama I found Mel waiting patiently for my return.
An old cattle operation.
The Labato Trestle is the second highest on the line at 100 feet above Wolf Creek.
Climbing to elevation.
The creek we passed earlier, still climbing.
Looking back to where we came from.
Arriving at Osier, the halfway point on the railroad, we have already passed the high point at Cumbres pass elevation 10,022.
Feeding two trains of passengers (one from Chama and one from Antonito) at the same time requires a bit of coordination.
The water tower at Osier.
One of the many vistas.
Just a few of the scenes I saw on the trip. I hope to be able to show a few more tomorrow. Today I think we are looking at some laundry so we can clear the decks and make room for the good life.
