Remarks & Notes 
Climbing the Andes
This is high mountain railroading, standard gauge style, on a 4.3% grade. Picture shot between Casapalca and Ticlio around 4500 m / 14500 ft above sea level. So high in the Andes, it is rare to have sunny weather with blue skies because this is precisely where the massive mountain range stop the humidity and clouds coming from the Pacific Ocean.
