Looking Down on Crozier Canyon
Author: slug96

Looking down at Crozier Canyon, a heavy eastbound stack train from the ports of Los Angeles battles the nearly 1.5% grade up Yampai Hill. Nestled between Truxton and Valentine, Ariz., Crozier Canyon is home to grazing cattle, red rock plateaus, and the former Santa Fe Transcontinental. The tracks snake along Truxton Wash as trains battle up to the 5,700 foot high summit at Yampai; some fifteen miles west of Seligman, Ariz. For over five minutes, you were able to hear these three GE motors chugging through the Canyon. 

Thanks for looking!

Whom ever says desert scenery is "boring" knows not what they speak of. Your image is just simply gorgeous!

One of my favorite places (loves me some geology), and when they get to stretch out in the Aubrey Valley.

Protected the Seligman side today. I was looking up from in the canyon but saw no one. Great photo.
