Photo: Wildcat Canyon – ca. 1900

The next time you drive Wildcat Canyon (Colorado Highway 141), look for remnants of the Rio Grande Southern Railroad grade as it winded its way up the canyon on its way to Hesperus. This picture shows men along Wildcat Creek with the train trestle in the background. Who these men are or what they were doing is apparently lost to history.
