Description

Windy Point is an aptly named stop on the Pikes Peak Cog Railway. Most of the rail is a single track, but switches here and at Minnehaha allow multiple trains to use the route at the same time. On our ascent and on our descent, we waited here for a train headed in the opposite direction to pass us. Although the shaking from the train stopped as the train waited, there was enough wind buffeting my Nikon to make me worry about camera shake.

At 12129 feet elevation, Windy Point is above the tree line and only a few thousand feet below Pike Peaks 14,115 summit. Our conductor tells us that the old, stone station house is only used by marmots these days. We didn’t see any marmots during out ride up the mountain, but the stone station building is still there in artful disrepair among the rocks and vegetation of this high peak
The 15 images of this panorama were photographed with a Nikon D80 and stitched with Autopano Pro.
