One of my favorite assignments from 2016 was shot for New Mexico Magazine, covering the historic Cumbres & Toltec narrow gauge railroad as it made its way from Antonito, Colorado to the Chama Depot in Northern New Mexico!

Americana on Rails — We traveled through the high desert, crisscrossing the State Line and winding our way over snow covered passes and into the small community of Chama, NM. I’ve often traveled via train, from the highlands of Ecuador to the open plains of Tanzania, this Western route over Chama Pass will remain as one of my favorites!
