Against the Elements
A heavy snow squall is no obstacle for Durango & Sliverton 473 as she pulls the Cascade turn into Rockwood. Having surmounted the steep grades of Hermosa Hill, the train will momentarily crest the summit and, slipping through the confines of Rockwood Cut, emerge onto the legendary High Line, 400 feet above the Animas River. The passengers won't get much of a view amidst the swirling snow this morning, but in typical Colorado fashion, the sun will probably be shining by the time they return in a few hours.
