Running away from TX wasn’t as hard as I thought. We left the level lands for a leap over Raton Pass and down into Trinidad, CO for a quick overnight stop.

First in a series of between-the-feets-while-in-the-sheets-shots.

Towering above southern Trinidad, The Tower 64 Motel and RV Park is a beacon of cockroaches and glaring parking lot lights.  Definitely rated BYOTP (bring your own toilet paper).

An interesting artifact outside of Safeway is Engine 638, a 2-8-0 coal-fired steam locomotive.  The last of its type and a great representation of the type of choo choo that opened up the west.

A fitting tribute to the man at Kit Carson Park.  Dead-eyed and resolute, with a face like that, he was not known for his way with the ladies…

    Welcome back to Raton Pass, Rebecca! We went under it on Amtrak in 1985, then watched a flash flood roll downhill next to the train as we headed to Albuquerque.
