Another set of great photo's.

The tunnel entrance of tunnel 19 looks so cool. The wood construction with some stone staple walls surrounded by the rocks. Love that. Almost looks like a model.

The pair of tankcars are nice too.

Hi Ray :wave:



Hey ! great photos !!

Looks like a nice trip to 'Rugged & Rocky' country.

I can see the inspiration for your railroad.



You CRAZY KID there Ray !

Tryin' to fly that drone through the tunnel.

Can it be fixed ?



Maybe you should have tried a ROCKET ! ;)


:)


Si.

Yeah, it's pretty easy to see the Carrizo Gorge influence on my In-ko-pah Railroad!

I had insurance on the drone, so I received a replacement within a few days.
I brought the new one with me on this last trip.
And now it looks like I'm going back there again in early March,
this time my brother-in-law will be joining me.

BTW, I did fly a camera rocket near the big trestle once, in the early '90s.
It had a Super 8 film movie camera.
Someday I want to get a lot of those old rocket films transferred to video.

Thanks for the extra photos!

A cabin built from blasting powder cans...that would make an unusual building.

Last week I took another trip out to the Carrizo Gorge.

This time my brother-in-law Matt was with me, which was great.
We've wanted to do a trip together for years, but he lives in CO so it's never worked out until now.
Anyway, we spent the night at the end of the trail,
got up just before sunrise, and started hiking at 6:45 a.m.





Here's a shot of Matt hiking the tracks:





I had more camera gear I wanted to bring this time, so I bought a luggage cart and hauled some of it on that:





This worked ok, but the tiny wheels were far from ideal and made for slow going.
The round trip to the big trestle and back took eleven hours,
two hours longer than on my previous trip.

The weather was perfect, both for hiking and for flying/photography.
It was warm but not overly hot, with winds variable from zero to five mph.
During much of the day there was a thin, hazy overcast that not only kept the heat down,
but also provided a fantastic diffused light for shooting photos and video.





Here are just a few stills from the many videos I shot:











I have so much video that it's going to take me a while to get it edited into something I can upload.

Once I do, you can be sure I'll post it here.

This is the first in a short series of documentary videos on the historic, scenic Carrizo Gorge,
and the San Diego & Arizona Railway line that runs through it.
This video explores the northern end of the gorge route.
