    Found and met Ben. :)

    We talked about our travels and shared about a shared interest to railfan Baily Yard one day before the double whistle cut us off.

    Glad to meet ya Ben. Safe travels. :)

    Ben this brings back memories when you and I missed each other by only a few minutes and didn't even know it...

    So, was their a "Meet" photo of you two done or were you both afraid of breaking a camera? ;)

    Let's see...you're not bald, don't have boobs, not a child, or in an Amtrak uniform, so that only leaves about 25 possibilities.....:tb-wacky:

    Yea, I forgot too when I've had a chance to meet up with others here too. Will try to catch up with you on your West Bound ride as I won't get a chance to catch you on the East Bound as you pass through Denver.

    Let's see, that's you in the Black slacks and White Top right!!! :pwink:

    Departing Glenwood Springs. Generally this leg of the trip is when I have the least amount of service. I'll share what I can when I can. :)

    Just finished our short and sweet trip through Glenwood Canyon. The beauty is too great to waste on this cell phone camera, so I used my T2i on the scenery. Taking not photos, but several short HD videos to really show the depth of the outcroppings as we change perspective. Hopefully I can get them rendered using my laptop so I can share as quickly as possible (mid-next week perhaps). :)
