Denver & Rio Grande Western
Colorado (Animas River Canyon)
June 13, 1970
By this point (a short distance south of Elk Park) the Animas River and Denver & Rio Grande Western narrow gauge line were practically equal in elevation. This was not always a good thing; the river could become more than a little destructive, putting the line out of commission for up to several weeks at a time.
