Colorado Narrow Gauge in the Fall

If you haven't been out to see any of the Colorado Narrow gauge railroads, do yourself a favor and get out there!

Only had a brief morning encounter with the Durango and Silverton.

Those Aspens are beautiful and I sure am glad the train is red because it makes great fall colors. I think the sky in Colorado is bluer too. Great series Brad.
