Chama steam rail yard before Christmas

View of rotary snowplow and Chama train station

On Monday, after checking and doing a bit of work at the marina at Heron Lake, Gerald and I drove into Chama. The railyard was looking scenic in the snow, so we snapped a few pictures. We also visited with one of the local business owners, which was easy on a slow day.

Imagine that. A red-headed kid wearing shorts in the snow! Deja vu all over again.
