From this vantage point one can see just about all of the grade on over to B44A the butterfly trestle. The slide conditions on this portion of the line are also apparent. In the background is the hillside that required numerous bridges on the way up to Matterhorn. The ledge for the highway is just visible in this shot. Photo by Dave Dye on June 4, 2005.




On the mountainside above the grade a waterfall plunged down the rock face. The sound from the fall could be heard from quite a distance. A small patch of snow was still present at the top of the fall. Photo by Dave Dye on June 4, 2005.



Look at this, some ties with a little bit of metal left. Photo by Dave Dye on June 4, 2005.
