UP 4045 on the point of the K-BRLC passes through the winter wonderland at “The Slide”.
Merry Christmas everyone! As my last post indicated a major health issue impacted my family starting in October. Treatments are going well however I’m still in for a long commitment to this issue so I do not expect regular posts to begin again soon. In fact it could be another 6 to 9 months before the new normal settles in. As I mentioned previously, I’m making lemonade.
In the mean time I will pull an image from the archives to help put everyone in a Christmas mood. This image dates from December 2005 trip to Pengra Pass where our little group experienced some wonderful Northwest snow and enough train traffic to keep the trip very interesting. Oh and we had the pleasure of retrieving one of our vehicles out of a snowy ditch. Thank goodness for shovels, tire chains and clear thinking! That year enough snow fell to limit us to Fields and below on the north side of the pass. On the south side we ventured as far as Chemult where lots of dry snow lingered around in the single digit temperatures. Brrrr. It was cold but lots of great images came out of the effort.
