A nice, elevated shot of a long Provo-Denver heading east down the main at Leyden. Note the new construction to the left of the train, including a new "Kum & Go" gas station that just opened a week ago. The houses to the left of the train make up the neighborhoods of Five Parks and Whisper Creek. Construction on Five Parks took place around 2000, and Whisper Creek around 2005. In the distance is man-made Stanley Lake. Because the lake is downwind from the former Rocky Flats - a plant that used to build triggers for nuclear bombs - locals often joke that Stanley Lake is home to three-headed fish and glowing plants.
