West of Kremmling, the tracks head directly through Gore Canyon, One of the more amazing canyons to behold, it is only accessible by rail (or raft...not advisable in January!). If you are in a car, you have to drive around the canyon on Grand County 1 (Trough Road). The roads meets back up with the tracks on the west side of Gore Canyon, albeit several hundred feet above. This spot is known as "Inspiration Point", and it isn't hard to see why! A westbound coal empty snakes through the canyon and through Tunnel 38, approach the east switch of Azure.
