2013 – Summer Vacation – Part 8A

08 Jun

Curecanti National Recreation Area

As we approach the end of this trip we will head into Curecanti for some views along with a little historic Railfanning.  Our first stop is at Pioneer Point to catch a different view of the D&RGW Logo Peak know as Curecanti Needle.

There also some great views of the river and side waterways that run deep in this canyon


Our next stop is at Hermits Rest where you can get great views of the Rugged San Juans as well as take a hike into the canyon for those in better shape and have more time then we have…

We will head towards Cimarron, CO as we heard the D&RGW Train Display might be up again and even though it isn’t, we catch the Steam Engine / Tender #278, Boxcar #3132, and Caboose #0577 in a back lot.  If you look at my older posts of the Display before it was recently restored these historic railroad equipment was in bad shape.
