Another lovely sunny day and last day of my vacation.  SIGH.  Didn't get everything done that I wanted to but that's pretty normal.  I had to share my first train pic of the year and this goes back into the archives of my favorite tourist railroad, the Cumbres & Toltec in Colorado and New Mexico.  I like this shot because it shows the vastness of the landscape you travel through on this train.  Plus it's a shot of the whole train which I usually don't do.  The train is on a loop of track after passing by an original Rio Grande water tank just to the right of the track you can see in the foreground of the image.  There are actually some houses in this area that are just out of sight to the left of the image.  On an interesting note, they have to provide their own electricity and water as the area is not developed for living.  There are some lovely log cabin style homes here though and I can see why they would want to live here with the beautiful view.  The train is a bonus too.  :-)
