Remarks & Notes 
Just another purty day in the Sumpter Valley. With a gray, morning overcast suddenly breaking up nicely, Eccles Lumber Company Heisler #3 makes a spirited charge past one of the many ponds along the Sumpter Valley Railway, just west of tiny McEwen.

I've been to this location a number of times now, and I can honestly say that it never gets old. Depending upon the weather conditions and the time of year, you could come here a dozen times and never get the same shot. On this particular morning, the breaking overcast left a crown of puffy clouds on the mighty Elkhorn Range to the north, not to mention, a dusting of snow up near the summits. Down in the valley, there was nice, warm sunshine and a little bit of fall color. Add in a narrow gauge Heisler trailing a pretty steam plume and a nifty pond reflection and I'm not sure what else we could have wished for!
