Help needed identifying where this was shot
Author: CimaScrambler

If I remember correctly, this was taken somewhere along the KP not too far east of Denver, however I have been unable to figure out just where. Can any of you folk that know the area recognize the location? The date was July 22, 2006. I searched using on-line aerial photos for the silos in the image but they may be gone by now.

Thanks in advance,

North Brighton I think on the DP

Halburton may use that thingy for frac sand.

after that a vestas plant was built over your left shoulder, with more track.

new signals have come and you can see the pole line which is getting truncated with very little left

I agree, north end of Brighton. I believe it is about a quarter mile north of Baseline Road. Passed thru there about three years ago and remember this "colorful" trackside industry.

Wow, I had completely forgotten about that spot. I remember driving north along US 85 from Commerce City once when I had a couple of hours to spare on a business trip to the area. I didn't remember actually getting any photos that day. Looks like my memory needs a boost!

Thanks for the help!
