And two lonesome clouds. How blue can the sky get? Nice color with the engine which brings out the reds in the grasses and soil. I think I'm diggin' this shot.

Hopefully in the place where I live will be used this very good kind of transportation..

Very cool. Leadville is in the history books.
Is it hard to breath up that high? MB

A massive engine, the blue of the sky is almost unbelievable...

P.S. You are right, the buffalo shot was scanned from a film photo.

Ah, 10K feet up, you're closer to the sky... Don't know the first thing about trains, but this looks like a beaut.

I see I missed some good posts. I've seen Leadville a couple of times, but I don't remember it in good weather. The first visit, I don't remember at all. My great-grandparents were married there in 1881, and I remember seeing the marriage certificate, which was written in purple ink, if you can believe that! Thanks for the visit :)
