Frustration in Truxton Canyon

We had seen many photos of Truxton Canyon, and wanted to try the spot as well. When subscribing in the logbook of the private property, we recognized a few names of fellow railfans that are active on sites like railpictures.net. Yes, we were probably on the right track to get to the spot!
We left our non-all-terrain vehicle early on the bumpy road and hiked all the way to a good spot. Cloudcover didn’t help with getting the photo we wanted though. We had to wait quite some time to get a sunny photo, only to find out that the sun was standing way too high and a bit too far west. At home, the best shot turned out to be one in the shade.
