October 1-5, Chama, NM – continued
The days are getting cooler and the nights are getting really cold – it has gotten down to freezing a couple of nights so we had to deal with keeping the water lines from freezing.
Our friends from Arizona, Tom & Donna, arrived on the first for a visit and to ride the train. We were joined by their friend, David, from Maryland. We had a great ride and the colors were still beautiful although it is getting towards the end of the season.
We also took a scenic drive and as Donna is a professional photographer Rex got a couple of photography lessons. He got a couple of great shots of the train. This one is of a double header crossing the Chama River directly behind the campground.
Here the train is making its way up the Chama Valley towards Cumbres Pass - the colors are still beautiful.
