Denver & Rio Grande Western [Southern Pacific]
Cotopaxi, Colorado
June 7, 1996

An eastbound Rio Grande freight has just passed the Cotopaxi Kampgrounds of America™ at Cotopaxi, Colorado, and is heading downstream along the Arkansas River towards the Royal Gorge and Pueblo. Incidentally, with rock walls on both sides of the canyon the sound show was spectacular as well.
