Third time’s a charm

We had our photo, and after assuring nothing more was coming we continued north. We took our time, booking a room at a motel in the meantime, and looking for a new spot to photograph a train.
Price River Canyon offers some good possibilities for spectacular shots. Our first stop was at Castle Gate. And again, after only a few minutes waiting a train came around the bend. The same train as a few hours before. Really. In all those years of making photos of trains I’ve never accidentally seen the same train more than twice.
