Home from La Plata via the California Zephyr and San Joaquin Trains Part 2

by Chris Guenzler

Now we will leave the Moffat Tunnel, make our way into Red Rock Canyon and enjoy a storm in Gore Canyon on this segment. Sit back, relax and enjoy a trip "Though the Rockies, not around them!" You will travel through Byers Canyon, Gore Canyon, Little Gore Canyon and part of Red Rock Canyon. Look for the weird storm that came down from the sky to the top of a mountain.

Interesting geology along this railroad. At Dotsero we met the eastbound California Zephyr. Now we will head into Red Rock Canyon.

Welcome to Red Rock Canyon. There will be more of Red Rock Canyon on Part 3 of this story.
