2013 – Summer Vacation – Part 3B

03 Jun

Our next stop will be at the Colorado Gators Reptile Park; yes, you read that right…

This is a Family Operated / Active Fish Farm with Gators and other Reptiles / Birds they have “rescued” from pet owners that didn’t understand what they had.  So, it’s a bit of a tourist trap but it is also worth a stop if you are in the area and have the time to help them pay the bills.

I would also find some unexpected Railfanning while here as they had a couple of Boxcars used as storage sheds.  Both are likely old Burlington Northern units that were later listed as RBWX (WESTERN FRUIT EXPRESS CO.)    The location is roughly: Mosca, CO – 37 42.352 N / 105 52.160 W

After spending time walking through that facility taking photos and enjoying Lisa hold a baby gator it was time to leave.

Before calling it a night we will swing over to the Great Sand Dunes to take a few evening photos and get information on a trail we plan to hike in the morning.
