For years, I've wanted to take the Cuimbres-Toltec Scenic Railroad that runs from Chama to Antonito, and today - a long and beautiful drive to get there and back, plus six or so hours on the narrow gauge railway, and worth every exceptional minute.
Here's the other train coming up the mountain - I was standing at the cross-over point;
our train blowing off sediment from the water;
people leaning out of the windows to take pictures;
Alice taking a picture in a tunnel;
many, many wildflowers (here, in a stockyard);
looking back down the track;
couplings between cars;
and a painted old station house in Sublette.
