Description:
Another 'Nice to Have' image, but nothing else. Photographed at unknown time/date at unknown location, along the now automobile road running on the former Florence & Cripple Creek Railroad grade in Phantom Canon. Somewhat blurred and a bit out of focus also make it a waste of money and way to costly, stupid me!

Description:
Not the most interesting view I have, but I still felt it was important enough that I have two copies, this being my second edition of this scene, which is showing the now planked over trestle bridge at the so-called Lone Tree location in Phantom Canon, along the former Florence & Cripple Creek Railroad Grade, now known as the Phantom Canon Road, a road for automobiles to use and no more trains! I used to think this was looking downhill, but I've been wrong due to me never been there myself, but now I know thanks to a friend and visitor to my page who set me straight, thank you Ryan!
graphic for visual presentation of text This is a view going uphill, towards North, and that is a very useful information Ryan gave me as I have more views at this location, both as postcards and as photographs and thanks to his friendly nudge in the right direction I can now better put those images into the right position in my head! And if any of you reading this has been mislead by my former text, my apologies!
graphic for visual presentation of text By the Way, Ryan shared with me a recent photo he took a couple of years ago, the bridge is much wider now, the 'Lone Tree' is long been 'No Tree' but there appears to possible be a new 'Lone Tree' coming up as I see a green dot on his photo, close to where that tree is on this postcard view of mine here.

Description:
A view along the Phantom Canon road, on the former roadbed of the Florence & Cripple Creek railroad, and while it did look familiar to me, I was never able to connect the view in my head, until a friend and visitor to my page came to my rescue, thank you Ryan!
graphic for visual presentation of text This is a view facing/looking north, towards Alta Vista, Victor, at the upper end of the Wilbur Loop area, at the place called Rock Point. For some unknown reason, the photographer Lehr decided not to show the Rock Walls at this location but instead focus on the showing of what appeared as a cutting, and how the road curves towards it.
graphic for visual presentation of text Studying the image after I know what to look for, I can say that there is a small piece of the Rock Wall seen below the road, it can be picked out about 1/3 in from right-hand side with the top of that wall about 1/3 up from bottom.

[B] LONE TREE ROCK, PHANTOM CANON HIGHWAY, COLO.
graphic for visual presentation of textLovers of nature never tire of the many beautiful and interesting scenes along this magnificent highway, which is a part of the Big Circle Trip. This canon was well named. From start to finish weird and unique formations fill one with awe and admiration. Out of the top of this huge rock grows a pine tree without apparent nourishment or moisture.
graphic for visual presentation of text------ End Card info ------
graphic for visual presentation of text This view is looking downhill/south at the location known as Lone Tree Rock or just as Lone Tree. There is a planked over Trestle hiding behind that rock formation in foreground, while the automobile in the foreground seems to be facing north, going up towards the photographer.

Description:
I have seen till now [08.04.2018] eleven uses of this scene for postcards, where there often is just a millimeter or two of differences along the edges, making it into different crop editions, and I been able to buy some of those quite cheaply so that is kind of cool.

graphic for visual presentation of textVIEW IN PHANTOM CANON, COLORADO
graphic for visual presentation of textThis wonderful highway, a part of the Big Circle Trip, is one of the most beautiful and scenic in America. The road is a steady 4% grade practically the entire distance of forty miles. It is known as "The Million Dollar Road". There are fifty-three bridges on this road, all constructed of heavy railroad bridge timbers. These bridges add much contrast to the natural environs and are all painted white.

graphic for visual presentation of textAll thru this beautiful and picturesque scenic highway, the towering cliffs remind one of ancient castles and ruins of by-gone days. The rugged and hue-stained granite walls, contrasted with the evergreen, pines, shrubs and flowers, form a picture in the mind that cannot be portrayed by photo or painting, and words cannot express the grandeur of this mountain drive.
