Crazy how much the peaks to the far right have changed. There must have been one hell of a rockslide in the time between the two photos.

faster... Sometimes the lighting, the shadows, the quality of the image, etc. can influence perceptions. On one hand, I'm not sure the Cathedral Spires and her rocks have seen much change over the last 100 years, but then again, there sure are a lot of car sized boulders in the river... some of which we probably tossed there during the construction of the tracks.

The D,SP & P narrow gauge on a run up the North Fork of the South Platte...


The bike on a run down the North Fork of the South Platte...


Around the corner of the above pics there was a train stop at the resort cabin community of Ferndale...


Another stop is made 100 years later....

I got two riding friends and two non-riding friends to buy your book. It really is terrific. Now you should do one on Utah or on the Colorado Plateau.

John... Thanks and enjoy. There is the invitation to apply the same formula to other states/riding areas. Something to think about.
