A few miles north of Hillrose, CO is the rail location of Union. This is where the BNSF Brush Sub connected with the UP Julesburg Sub. In 1993, UP abandoned and ripped up the Julesburg Sub between Union and Kersey (near La Salle). In this shot, I would have been standing in the middle of the UP tracks. Now, the switch is gone and the line just curves to the BNSF Brush Sub.
