    That is some rough looking terrain. Nicely captured. The textures are extraordinary.

    At 14,000 plus level it is hard to imagine taking a train up there. Another place at Mt. Evans in summer you can drive to the top.

    The train ride up was about 1½ hrs.(with no bathroom!). We actually got dizzy up there.

    Fantastic scene and the tracks leading off to the unknown and out of the frame really grab the eye.

    Ooo not so sure I could do that. The drive up Cadillac mountain was enough for me and I was driving...yes the views are spectacular but that's a long ways up. Neat little perspective here..
