As we move our base-camp to new location tonight, we head over Wilkerson Pass (9,507ft) and stop to take in the views
We will next track down a historic railroad location ( 38.911254°N / 105.975374°W ) where the Colorado Midland Railroad and the Denver, South Park, and Pacific Railroad crossed. What remains are only the roadbeds and a bit of trestle abutments of the Colorado Midland.
We head over to Johnson Village (near Buena Vista) to find what remains of the Denver, South Park, and Pacific Railroad over the Arkansas River. Without going below US24 you would never see it as the built the highway over the top of it.
We will then head up to Monarch Pass to take a ride up on the Tramway; COLD & WINDY ride
I will also photograph an piece of Snow Removal equipment in the parking lot; you can see snow is still here
We will then head over Poncha Pass (9,010ft) on our way to our next destination but something we didn’t expect to see catches my eye at 38.394426° N / 106.058884° W. It looks to be the remains of the Steam Era Water Tank which should make it Denver & Rio Grande Western. Research: Round Hill
