Two narrow gauge boxcars repose on a Round Valley ranch (NW of Bishop, CA), survivors from the old Southern Pacific narrow gauge Owens Valley Branch (ex - Carson & Colorado Railroad).  After the line was abandoned and scraped in 1960, many of the boxcars ended up advertised in the area newspapers as for sale, they proved popular as storage sheds.  14,242 foot high White Mountain Peak dominates the background.  The twelve and thirteen thousand foot peaks of the Sierra Nevada are immediately to the photographer's back.  April 1998.

My truck is parked atop the narrow gauge bed in the center of the old ghost town of Chrysopolis, which enjoyed its heyday before construction teams of the Carson & Colorado Railroad came this way in 1882.  July 1997.
