Railfest

On Sunday, Alden and I drove up to Silverton to attend Railfest, an annual celebration of steam railroading on the Durango and Silverton Railroad.

It was a glorious day, as this picture attests. The usual afternoon showers stayed away.

There is nothing like the thrill of watching a steam locomotive pull into town. The puffing, rattling machine engages almost every sense. It even shakes the ground!
