Abandoned Colorado Midland Railroad Grade 11/30/13

Short approximately 2.5 mile excursion to check it off Mark's bucket list. :)  I did this once before back in 2007 with my nieces and nephews.  Looks mostly the same, maybe a little more wearing away with time.

Going up the hillside from US 24 to the railroad bed.

We stopped to find a geocache inside one of the tunnels.











Some abandoned homeless camps - why would they leave all this stuff behind?


This reminds me of the movie Journey to the Center of the Earth.



A picture from library archives of the construction.
