A mad dash and running got me ahead of the train to shoot little Gore Canyon. Except they had to flag more signals:( Sun was there. Then it went and sucker holes remained.

Finally, at Palisades.
They sacked the local at De Beque, and let him follow the special to town.
Had to get to work so headed home. My poor truck was beat!!

Well there's no more Rio Grande and I'm not a super patriotic UP fan but that said these are very fine shots!

Gee, wonder why they ran on the Rio Grande instead of the UP through Wyoming?
Could it be that there's actually something to look at on the Rio Grande vs the miles and miles on nothingness on the UP?

If you are gonna get IOTD, it's gotta be number 4. All great shots, though!

Great series D! Nice to see you out there and witness your driving abilities first hand:}

Really like the bridge shot at Range and the De Beque Canyon one as well. 

I see my car in the Minturn Local shot, right in the tiny cloud cover, par for the course!

That's what I'm talking about! Fantastic chase. You made the most out of less-than-ideal weather scenarios.

TO needs to establish a COY award: "Chase Of the Year". Or COM: (Chase Of the Month). Or maybe COW: (Chase Of the Week). COD might be too fishy...

I have no clue how Todd narrowed so many A+ shots down to a single IOTD winner. Woof... :^)
