Spontaneous Photos

Chama, NM is one of the train stations of the Cumbres & Toltec Narrow Gauge Railroad. We were heading to the store this morning and saw the smoke, which meant the train had left for the morning run to Antonito, CO. We raced ahead, stopping in five places along the highway where we could see the train well. It was such a fun time, staying just ahead enough to set up for more camera shots.

This is truly one of the advantages of taking these trips that I enjoy the most...the spontaneity of setting out to do one simple task and being able to take advantage of these special opportunities that present themselves! We plan on returning here in a few weeks, late September and early October for a week to take in the Fall colors. We have seen so many aspen, oak and evergreens here that it promises to be spectacular when they all turn colors. Hopefully, the week we have chosen will be the peak for the leaves!

Awesome photos, Susan! I love them all, the trains, the horses and cowboy, the lake, the rusty creek - what a wonderful trip!
