Eagle River Canon

Beyond Leadville is the wonderful Canon of the Eagle, with its many mines and its beautiful dashing river. Near Belden station one can see from the car windows the little mining city of Gilman, 2,000 feet above the tracks. It is through this canon that the Denver & Rio Grande has recently completed its double-tracking, westbound trains taking one side of the river, and eastbound the other.
