Yes, all photos on my phone. I'm really impressed with the cameras in the phones these days. I'm currently using a Google Pixel and some of the pics are post processed with the built in editor; usually just the auto adjust edit. That seems to pop the colors just enough.

Day 7 and 8 (supplemental) I took the Amtrak train through the Rockies from Grand Junction to Denver and back.


This had been on my bucket list for a while. It's a great way to see some beautiful country; for much of the way it follows the Colorado River.


The Denver train station (and the whole downtown area) has been refurbished and is now really nice.

Hi Guys - Spence from Santa Fe checking in. Thank you for catching me on Scofield Pass and getting me turned around. I was very late for dinner (having to go back through Crested Butte and over Kebler Pass), but since the dinner was in the back of the Volvo, I was right on time.

I love the photo of the ORP lineup with the Volvo in the middle! Looks like a desktop photo for me - a good reminder!

A couple of days later, we did the punchbowl and Schofield Pass proper in a lifted FJ Cruiser. That was easily one of the hairiest drives that I (and the driver) have ever done. We were alone and

There is NFW that I would have ever made it and I think Paul was right that ORP did save my life - stupid tourists - always getting into trouble!

Thank you to Goose/Paul, John, Scott, Ladybug/Karen and Steve (and anyone that I forgot).

Great TR - and the scenery there was amazing.

Thanks again, ORP!

Spencer - Santa Fe

Great job guys!
I know that none of you did it for thanks or recognition but I also know that once in awhile it’s nice to be appreciated.

Solid work ORP gang! You hate to butt in on folks, but once in a while your gut just makes you do it. Glad you took the initiative and spoke up. Sounds like Spence from Santa Fe is glad you did too.
