The Rio Grande Scenic Railroad is one of the two standard gauge railroads on this trip. The train travels from Alamosa, CO to La Veta, CO through the La Veta Pass. I didn't take many photos of the trip as I spent most of the time enjoying lunch and talking to my fellow travelers on board. However the scenery over the pass was beautiful and I did get a fuzzy picture of a bear near the train. We even pass by a few extinct volcanoes. After the train, we stopped at the Great Sand Dunes National Park. The dunes reach heights between 700-800 feet high.
