Denver & Rio Grande Western [Southern Pacific]
Colorado (Little Ten Curve)
June 8, 1996

Amtrak's westbound California Zephyr/Desert Wind is just entering the Little Ten Curve as it continues its climb of the Front Range west of Denver; the sharpness of the curve is apparent here. Rocky Flats Lake can be seen in the distance. This view is from Blue Mountain Road above Clay Siding.
