1: Someone tore off the Adopt-a-Road poster on our lower sign
. It's been fine for years and now it's gone
2 & 3: My dad and I went down the Argentine Central Railroad grade where it comes in to meet 248.1. I'd never been down there before, and it was quite interesting. It turns into a hiking/biking trail that goes down to Silver Plume. There was a stone chimney left over just feet from the grade, does anybody know what this building may have been? Part of the railroad maybe? Bill? Nathaniel? Anyway, it was interesting to imagine a train coming around the corner from where I was sitting taking this picture, chugging up the mountainside.
4: Following the HEEP tracks up 248.1. This is above our larger upper sign, but before the 248.1P junction. After 248.1P the tracks were less defined but same idea all the way until we got stopped. We actually got a lot further than I expected.
5: Parking spot at 248.1P/248.1B intersection.
