Heron Lake State Park, New Mexico – Day 9

The motorhome is still at the state park while I rest and recuperate from the May 27th accident.

Yesterday I took the Bronco and drove the about 20 miles to Chama…the largest community in northern central New Mexico. It’s at 7,850 feet of elevation and during the 2000 census had a population of 1,199 people.

You can read about it by clicking this Wikipedia link…

It is also the home of the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad. It is America’s highest and longest steam railroad and was built in 1880. Here’s the official website link…

I’ve not yet decided if I will take the ride on this train as Mary and I recently rode on the Durango & Silverton Scenic Railway. If you missed that Blog entry, you can see it by licking this link…

Here are some of the photos that I took at Chama…

Most of us never get to see a real-life steam train, except in the movies, You can see my short YouTube movie by clicking this link…

Photographing unusual places and things is another joy in the life of a full-time RVer!
