Remarks & Notes 
The iconic Rio Grande Zephyr train #18 roars east through Spanish Fork Canyon approaching Thistle. The toe of land to the left of the 5771 would in six years become the huge Thistle landslide that closed the railroad, the highway, and damed the Spanish Fork River with nearly 300 feet of mud leading to the relocation of both US Highway 6 and the D&RGW.
