I did manage to convince dad to drive his new wagon down to Trout Lake, only because he had driven he older wagon there a few years ago. However I was on my own if I wanted to hike over to where someone had placed the body of coach 252 on the hillside above the lake. So I did....

There is a gap in the slide numbering which suggests I did take a slide of Trout Lake Tank, but I pulled it out the file for some slide show I did years ago, and didn't return it to the proper spot. So.... no pic of Trout Lake Tank, sorry. Everyone has seen it anyway. I do have a pic of a very railroad-looking snow measuring stick next to where the tank is....

Down the grade (actually up the grade) to the end of Trout Lake, the RGS crossed the Lake Fork of the San Miguel River on this nice curved trestle. Some years before, one actually drove over this bridge when driving the grade to Lizard Head Pass. By 1976, the road had bypassed the trestle. This trestle remains today as the largest remaining RGS trestle.

As I mentioned before Dad was not going this way to Lizard Head ( sad smiley ). So we back tracked to the paved highway and headed to Lizard Head.

I was not clear as to what to look for at Lizard Head Pass. There was a large, heavily vandalized information sign, but as to where things were, I was at a loss. So I took a shot of Lizard Head Peak and headed down the hill to Rico.
