Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Having camped at Rollins Pass and Hagerman Pass your diary brought back fond memories.

However, there was another old narrow-guage line outside of Boulder that served the mining towns in the mountains known as The Switzerland Trail. I used to live just below the site of the train station in the "town" of Wall Street, so named for all the NY money invested in the local mines, and hiked the old train bed regularly. The train line ran to the numerous little towns and carried gold ore down to the processing plants and smelters in Boulder. While there are no tracks left, the trail is popular with hikers, four-wheelers and the like, sneaking into scenic parts of Boulder County.
