Day 3 begins and ends in Leadville, Colorado at 10,152 feet. We start off the morning traveling back towards Red Cliff that we passed on our way to Minturn the day before. Near this area the D&RGW track dropped deep into a canyon that begins in Red Cliff. We saw no way to stay within the canyon except by train or by river. A few miles down the highway we found a great little turn off that over looked Eagle Mine and the track below.

We then completed out loop drive to return to Leadville for todays main event. Time to get on board the Leadville, Colorado & Southern with the Video Camera ready to record the trip. Here is a shot of our host.
I bet you will enjoy my RRAdventures topic of this trip later with video of this ride…
