The tail end of Amtrak is just about to round the curve and disappear into Tunnel 1. Nearly a foot of snow fell the day before in the second of two blizzards which hit the Front Range in a 9-day period!

I really liked the snow covering *nearly* everything in this shot except for the train. Funny you should ask about snow shoes. Can't tell you how many times on this day I promised myself I would get myself snow shoes before I went out again! I was standing in drifts up to my knees. Doh!

Tunnel 1 is my favorite spot to just hang and watch westbounds work their way up from Rocky! This photo is my favorite pic from your day! Were you wearing snow shoes? I appreciate your effort!
