After getting through canyon west of Glenwood Springs, the Zephyr reaches Chacra and the start of Grand Valley. The landscape opens up, allowing for much higher speeds for trains. Here at east end of Chacra, the Zephyr passes by some brilliant fall colors as it picks up speed. It will go 70+ MPH for much of the remaining trip to Grand Junction.
