Well, we finally got a bit of decent rain!  Yay!  Not sure how much as I have not put a gauge out yet but it was more than a sprinkle so it's about time.  For today's image I am going back to the Cumbres & Toltec which I processed in B&W for a more timeless look.  This is an older image from our first visit to the line.  We had ridden the day before and then this day we were chasing it to photograph it.  We were treated to a double header and at this point they are making their way up to Windy Point on their mostly uphill trek out of New Mexico.  When they reach the top which is a short distance from here, the second locomotive will detach and head back to Chama, NM after both locomotives take on water.  This spot is a great place to witness the drama of old time steam locomotives working hard to climb a steep grade.
