Union Reservoir

A visit to the Union Reservoir area. Bright and cool, temperature in the high forties.

One very noticeable thing you'll see out there are a lot of empty coal train cars, parked on the old Great Western rail line.

They are lined up for miles, as far as the eye can see.

One explanation that I've heard is that these cars are not needed because demand for coal is lower these days, due to reduced energy consumption.

A surprise along County Road 1. Thanks for the wave, Santa!
