Looking west down the canyon
Another sandy flat section of the wash
About 50' dry fall, just another step down the canyon
Another flat sandy section, Tule Mtn can be seen straight ahead in the far distance
Some Sumac, the berries were a bright maroon
I finally see the tracks, Tule Mtn again in the background
This train section was right at the canyon mouth
Passenger cars were from Montreal
The passenger cars had a real funky '50's color pastel green. Notice how the seats on one side face one direction and the other side faces the opposite direction.
The Canadians are some of the most polite people on trains
Looking thru to another passenger car
Looking into the caboose
Inside the caboose
From the caboose engineer seat
Caboose engineer seat, there were four total
The caboose seemed to be from Mexico
The wheel brake would seem to indicate a long term parking spot
Looking north into Carrizo Gorge
Looking down into Carrizo Gorge at the old railway wheels, they are almost dead center in the picture
25' railway tunnel
Why do animals always crap on rocks??? This rock was about 4" across, not very big..that is great aim!
Looking south down the gorge
Looking north up the gorge
Ah..finally, the old railway parts
June 15th 1893..sweet..!!
Another set of wheels buried in catclaw
Looking back up to the train tracks
Looks like an old can that had railway spikes in it
Catclaw..damn, maybe 100' or so down by the wheels did this. Even got my hands, arm and face.
This is the dry fall at the end of the canyon. I hiked back up this to get back to my truck
One of my favorite photographic subjects, animal scat. This one has some nice bones, specifically a small set of front teeth
Juniper berries, they were everywhere.
Another wildlife guzzler, I saw a total of (4) in the area
Can't visit the desert area without finding a mylar balloon
