Yeah, would've been cool to see this place 100 years ago. The whole point of this thread is how bizarre/crazy/cool/creepy it is that we are retracing the steps of those that were here before us.

Didn't figure out where that school is yet?

Crawford Notch in New Hampshires White Mountains. This narrow gorge is the start of the Saco River. It has been a pass through the mountains since the late 1700s. It has been a route by trail, railroad and road.

Interesting too, you can see the progression as the forest slowly covers the big outcrop on the left. Those may be the standing dead trunks of the large pine trees on the left, in picture 2, and notice how the large stand of pines on the right of the gorge are logged, then grow back...

Here's a couple of cool photos I found from a recent trip we did that went through the Canon City, Colorado area:


Devil's Gap just west of Canon City when the railroad route went through the canyon



Now:



Skyline Drive back in the day



Now:




Funny thing is I didn't even know I had taken these almost matches until I got back and started looking through photos of the areas we had ridden!
