The object of these photos is to show the viewer the way the perspective changes as the train passes by this rock formation, It is said to resemble passing through a giant gate in the mountain, and is called Castle Gate. I believe that the rock formation was a lot more dramatic before some genius blew up the other half of the gate so the train could take the bend 5mph faster. The California Zephyr usually gets here about two hours earlier so it is difficult to get clear photos when it is on time - Luckily today it was Late... This is 1 0f 6 photos as we travel east..( If you would like to see the westbound trip Start at #6 then go back to 1 : )
