Denver & Rio Grande Western [Union Pacific]
Cisco, Utah
September 28, 1997

At Cisco, Utah, the Denver & Rio Grande Western's long eastbound trek across the moonscape of the San Rafael Desert comes to an end as the road begins its descent into the valley of the Colorado River, eventually to pass through Ruby Canyon before arriving at Grand Junction, Colorado. This view looks east from the Utah State Route 128 grade crossing.
