Remarks & Notes 
Union Pacific #8418 is at track speed through the super elevated S turn around the great Pink Panther at Dale Junction straight into the early morning light on a frigid January day. Sherman Granite is rich in epidote, a green mineral, which together with lichens and the red feldspar imparts to it a mottled red and green color. Although hard when unaltered the Sherman granite breaks up readily into a coarse gravelly soil under the influence of heat, cold, and the action of water, so that it forms smooth, round hills. Where the rock is firm it weathers along widely spaced joints and forms heaps of rounded bowlders. These bowlders are like great faces, rock people. Dominating this scene, the Pink Panther stands the highest and most pronounced near Sherman Hill at the Continental Divide. Shot on Mavic Pro 2.
