Colorado mountains near Osier

View to the east in the mountain country of south central Colorado, near Osier. The air is not as clear as usual because of some forest fires further west. The area pictured is near the scenic route of the Cumbres and Toltec Scenic Railroad, which uses old coal-fired locomotives to take passengers on a trip through natural beauty and frontier history.

In the hazy distance to the southeast at right can be seen San Antonio peak along the Colorado - New Mexico border, not far from Antonito, Colorado, the eastern terminus of the Cumbres and Toltec Scenic Railroad.
