2008 COLORADO SOJOURN
2008 COLORADO SOJOURN
In September 2008 I made another of my annual returns to Colorado to experience Rocky Mountain railroading. Unfortunately half of my photos are missing because I managed to lose my data card. Luckily I was able to purchase a replacement resume picture taking for half of my trip. My ride over La Veta Pass is missing, but I was able to recover some record of my time in Alamosa. The beautiful weather I enjoyed in Alamosa disappeared before my ride on the Durango & Silverton Narrow Guage, but it is always a thrill to experience a ride on that symbol of Rocky Mountain railroading.
