In July ’21 we decided to get out of the Austin heat for awhile, so hauled the rig up to Chama for three weeks in the New Mexico mountains.
We stayed in 2 separate RV parks, both of which were quite nice.
We went downtown quite often for a meal or just coffee.
Shelley setup the hummingbird feeders, including putting one on her finger. The hummingbirds were interested and came quite close to Shelley’s ring feeder.
While we were there we of course took a ride on the Cumbres Toltec Railroad. This is one of only a few narrow gauge railroads.
We rode most of the way in one of the open flat cars. The view was great, but we ended up with soot all over us.
These trains are narrow gauge in order to make the sharp turns necessary in some of the mountain passes.
The lower path seen here is the highway, which is much newer than the original train tracks which are shown above it, and much more precariously cut into the side of the cliff.
We were sad to leave, but it’s always nice to head back home.
