Remarks & Notes 
Sweet Light at MP 299.0. Leaving Big Horn and proceeding east toward Antonito, our charter leaders spied a nice little pond, created by runoff from melting snow. Hoping for a reflection shot in late afternoon light, we disembarked around MP 299 for static shot and a run-by. The wind was still pretty strong, which made the reflection shot all but impossible, but the resulting run-by was pretty nice, albeit a bit glinty. This spot is literally a 9-iron shot north of the CO-NM border. From Big Horn east to Antonito, our train will cross that border no fewer than 5 times!
