Remarks & Notes 
A Little Bit is Better Than Nada

With a one-two punch of the COVID Pandemic and The Elk Creek Bridge being washed out action shots of The Durango and Silverton will be hard to come by in 2020. So, sometimes, you have to make your shot. This required a one way hike of 4.5 miles from the Purgatory Ski Area and through Purgatory Flats (hard to get in, hard to get out) and a vertical drop of 1,000 feet. Here we see K-37 No. 493 pulling the Cascade Express into its namesake station.
