|Cumbres and Toltec Scenic Railroad Train|
|The train above and red clock area are Chama's highlights.|
We, along with five other rigs, were camped at Sky Mountain RV Park in Chama. It's a peaceful park just a few miles from the center of downtown activities. During our only full day here, we took a whole day to see this quaint town that could have easily been seen in 30 minutes.
|The railroad came to Chama in December 1880 but in 1889 a fire burned the depot and most of the city.|
It was rebuilt the same year.
|An old car of the Denver and Rio Grand Railroad, predecessor to the Cumbres and Toltec.|
|Another view of the railroad yard.|
|We got a little carried away with the trains...|
For lunch we took a local's recommendation: Fosters. It's a hotel, a bar and a restaurant operating in one big old building. The "Foster burger with onion rings" was good and so was the restaurant ambiance.
|Been awhile since I've seen one of these wood burners. |
This one is extra fancy...
|Also inside Fosters Restaurant.|
|The weather and the scenery were pretty nice today.|
|As the train approached, the whistle nearly burst my eardrums. |
I feared for Lexie and Ozzie in the car a few yards away. I forgot all about the whistle.
|Spring comes! We're still in Northern New Mexico here.|
|The drive going up into Colorado.|
|Cumbres Pass - Elevation: 10,022'|
...and so our visit to Chama comes to an end. We'll leave tomorrow heading to our last stop in New Mexico for awhile....
