Windy Point at over 10,000 feet, is one of the most scenic places on the 64 miles long Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad. In late September and early October each year, the Aspens put on a colourful, fantastic show for visitors as they slowly go from green to golden before dropping their leaves. Visitors come from all around the world to witness the show, and this requires long trains pulled by double-headed locomotives to get the daily train from Chama, NM. to Antonito, CO. up the 4% grade.

Good footage. I thought you had captured an eagle soaring overhead in the first minute, then I realized it was your drone.
