Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad

Doing some training in Denver (Colorado, US) I decided to visit Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad

The railroad is a three-footer, and runs between Antonito (Colorado) and Chama (New Mexico)

On the way it zig-zags between Colorado and New Mexico, across Cumbres Pass (10015 feet / 3052 meters)

Because of time I could only do the trip from Antonito to Osier and back

I later found out, that the trip from Chama to Osier was the most interresting, but still it was breathtaking

No wonder they call it Scenic!

On the way, I visited Cripple Creek, an old mining area, and went down to see one of the old mines
