We started our last day in Antonito, Colorado. We road the Cumbres and Toltec Scenic Railroad through the mountains all the way to Chama, New Mexico.
Do you like trains? I do and there’s photo craziness ahead!
Engine 489 is a reconditioned, coal fired, steam run, narrow gauge engine built in 1925.
We were really on the edge of the mountain in a lot of places. Our highest point was over 10,000 feet above sea level. And yes, they told stories of trains going off the edge. Gah!
I spent a lot of time standing on the back balcony. The views were amazing.
We passed two cowboys herding their cattle. What a classic scene. LOL
That’s an old telegraph pole sticking up on the right.
I feel a train quilt coming on don’t you?
Sadly vacation is over and it’s time for the looooong ride back home. But I would do it all again! Such awe inspiring sights.
And the second best part of this vacation.…I didn’t gain any weight. I actually lost another pound and I’m looking forward to my Weight Watchers weigh in. Woot!
