Morning comes late
Title:  Morning comes late
Description:  It takes awhile for the sun to intrude upon the deep shadows of the Flathead valley this time of year; and what nicer development than for an eastbound to appear after Ive finished my coffee at the Izaak Walton Inn? Here the 4871 East comes across Goat Lick Trestle; set against the vastness of the Bob Marshall Wilderness.

Title:  Where the high plains meet the mountains
Description:  The CSX unit makes a nice contrast to the BNSFs on this outfit. It seems a bit strange to see the bare mountain peaks with the aspen this far advanced. Must be indian summer.
