The eastbound Zephyr accelerates up toward the posted trackspeed of 79 MPH as it is just east of the control point of Parachute (visible in the shot). This control point leads to a small BNSF yard that was once used for soda ash trains out of the plant at Parachute. Beyond that is the siding of Grand Valley, so named for this grand (and wide) valley the tracks run through here.
