Now that it's finally feeling like Winter, time to get the Summer schedule filled up:).

Had an absolute blast running the Train Trip in the early summer months. Nice warm long days. So planning on it again this year. I've come to love the Cumbres and Toltec- it's also hard to beat the scenery.

The W's:

When: June 9-12th 2022.

Where: Colorado/New Mexico boarder Base camp will be at Sublette, NM- an old track maintenance town.
-Base Camp Coordinates (from Google Maps): 36°59'22.8"N 106°13'21.5"W

Why: because it's a whole bunch of fun not only riding the historic train, but chasing it as well (makes for some fun photo ops).

As we get closer to the trip, I'll post up more details- what day we'll ride the train etc.

UPDATE 5/17/2022

Info for when booking your ticket for Saturdays train ride on June 11th, 2022:

Here's the info you'll need to tell them when booking your ticket: Antonito 8:30 am bus departure to Chama. Return to Antonito by train from Chama. When booking your ticket, ask to be seated with "Daniel Silbaugh".

Cumbres and Toltec

I like how I’m already added to it. Perry has communicated with my social coordinator, so the chances I have to drop out are VERY low. Early June is a pretty magical time to be up there!

One of the days, if folks are up for a little hike, I can bring you all to new photo/watching spots, like this one I shot last autumn.

Looks like fun! It's been awhile since I got out and about plus it will give me some time to build up a few vacation days at work :).

Thx,
Adam

Carolyn and I are going to go this year! We had a great time a couple years ago!!

Last year I bailed because of the stupid mask requirements....didn't want to spend a whole stinking day with a chin diaper....

Count me in, love this trip. Might be willing to give up the spot if it does fill up and someone whom has NOT GONE want's to go.

This was the most fun we have ever had with our Toyota when we attended a few years ago. Unless I win the lottery I don't think this is the year to return. Maybe next year :-(

All right all, after some thought decided to forego the cap on vehicles this year.

Camp is big enough to hold a large group. For the train, they'll just add more cars. The dirt roads are easy, and we can even break up into groups if we want.

I'll get you guys on the list!

Be fun to make a big Rising Sun showing for the C&TS!
