I rode the motorcycle from here to Durango, then to Silverton. It was a nice ride except for the rain that soaked and chilled me on the way back. By the time I got headed south back home, I was dry and warmed up.

Here is a pic of a place I went the day before I took the other pics in La Plata Canyon. This is in Chama, NM, which is about 130 miles east of here. It is the southern end of the Cumbres and Toltec narrow-guage steam railroad, which runs up to a town in Colorado where it meets up with a modern standard gauge railroad.

The Cumbres and Toltec is a working passenger and freight railroad.

The tracks on this railroad are 3 feet across, versus 4 feet 8 1/2 inches for a standard gauge railroad.

In this pic, you can see the coal tipple to the left behind the engine. That's where they store coal and load it on the car they pull behind the engine. The brick building to the right is the machine shop where they do repairs and maintenance on the engines and cars.

Tow other engines, warmed up and waiting, one partially parked in the machine shop.
