Show us Your favorite T travel pictures from 2016.
a couple more
Last May we took a trip out west towing our 26 with our motor home.
I don't remember were we saw this train, the folks that ran this exhibit allowed us to drive in and get this picture.
Here we are at Yellow Stone National Park were we drove our car for six days in the park.
Here is another picture of us at the west entrance.
We are at Devils Tower National Monument.
A group looking over the car at Devils Tower.
The pictures in my last post are orientated correctly in my computer, but when I try to post them on this forum the get rotated no matter what I try. Very frustrating!
When they do that try rotating them 360º.
Not quite like Dean. My Model T road trip was only about 250 miles.
That was the one where I slid off the muddy road into the brush.
Will I go again? You bet. But I'll remember to pack a couple of ropes.
Well Steve if that happen to me I not only would need a couple of ropes but a couple pair of clean boxers also.
Great post and pictures thanks for sharing
Steven, the photo posts in the orientation it was taken in, as that data is contained within the photo. To work around this:
-in Windows, rotate the photo using Windows photo viewer (lefthand and righthand rotate icons underneath photo) or do the same using whatever photo editing software you have.
Some of the data contained in your photo:
Garnet and Steve, Tried all that you advised. No joy.
Steve: We went to Devils Tower in 1982 and we were pulling a 21 foot travel trailer and when we parked there we walked the trail around the tower, and it was SPECTACULAR to say the least. What is impressive is that you see the tower from a long distance!
They saw it from a mighty long distance.
I think it was 2003 we stopped and i rode a bicycle to the end then walked around the tower.There were people climbing too the top!! Our first trip west and it was exciting to be away from our flat country!! Bud.PS,The ride back down was!!!!!
I Love ALL the POST... but I will allow myself to tell you,"Lots of us "T"rs... Are small folks that love the T... and we are lucky to have a place to park it out of the weather... And Believe me.. my wife can tell you every dime i spent on it.. Including my gas to go get it... but i love the show offs... glad everyone made it in the world
We were traveling across the mountains on an old forest service road.
Those look like old railroad grades--are they?
Didn't get to do as much traveling as I might have liked to this year.
Various trips I was able to make:
At Craters of the Moon National Monument and Preserve.
The photo with the hole is a old Railroad bed. Most of my pictures are on the Utah back country discovery route, cycle trail.
That big steam locomotive is a Union Pacific Challenger. If it's operational, it's number 3985 which is (currently) the largest operational steam locomotive in the world. UP is in the process of restoring larger 4-8-8-4 locomotive know as the "Big Boy."
Southern most point in the US by Model T
Read that Challenger is in for overhaul. UP will overhaul BigBoy first.
Steve, the Challenger locomotive in your picture is 3977, on display at Cody Park Railroad Museum in North Platte, NE. Of 252 "Challenger class locomotives built (105 for the UP alone) only 3977 and 3985 survive.
3985 is stuffed in the roundhouse in Cheyenne, and the Big Boy, 4014 will run first, if 3985 ever runs again (no, I'm not happy about that situation!)
Dean, your third pic sure looks like an old narrow-gauge railroad bed.
I will try again. Southern Most Point in USA
I had my first drive in my T this past summer:
I am looking forward to more T time in 2017.
Thanks Dave, I remember now, We drove from Gothenburg to North Platte to see the Golden Spike Rail Road Tower that overlooks the biggest marshaling yards in the world. Somewhere in North Platte we found the park that 3977 is at. It was a 40 mile each way drive that the car handled real good. When we got back to Gothenburg the right axle shaft broke in two at the local Mcd's when I was pulling in to a parking space.
Thank God it didn't happen while I was driving fast!
This is my rig where we stayed in Gothenburg.
These pictures are from a tour in the Red Lodge area this June.
Nearing the summit on Bear Tooth Pass.
Snow squal on the top of Bear Tooth.
On the way down toward Yellowstone.
Had to shrink some more pictures. These pictures are of our fall tour in the Salmon Idaho area.
Heading down the Salmon River just out of North Fork ID.
A stop at Shoup ID for pictures of the old mine and buildings.
Stop on Mill Creek Summit.
Stop at the Yankee Fork Dredge. Very interesting tour through the dredge.
