What an adventure!  It's fun just looking at Google Maps to see all the places the line has disappeared.  And the insanity of trying to put a railway through that area in the first place!
Where it disappears on Google Maps are the tunnels.
It still somewhat intact. There's really just one cave in at a tunnel entrance. 
This one here where my granddaughter climbed over...






A great documentary of the whole story...

We (7 of us) rode our mountain bikes up, then down the "Impossible Railroad" last Saturday.
Well... my granddaughter struggled the first 50 yards. So my son took their bikes back to the truck and walked instead of rode the whole way.
Surprisingly, they fell behind maybe a half mile on the way up to the Goat Canyon Trestle where we waited for them.
 We pressed on to the big 1/4 mile long tunnel. Waited again and had lunch.
Coming back, we got back maybe an hour before them.
An epic trip for all involved.

Almendres Cromlech

The construction of these structures dates back to the 6th millennium BC (2000+ years before Stonehenge).
They were rediscovered in 1966 by Henrique Leonor Pina, who was carrying out field work relating to the country's geological charts.

I've been there! There was an awesome beach cafe just east of Lagos (on that long strip that heads to Faro. They served grilled sardines the size of mackerel as many as you could eat. Delicious. With potatoes drained in garlic and olive oil. Way better than any of the restaurants in town but only a lunch-time affair IIRC. And you should drive out to the lighthouse at the SW tip of Portugal. Where Lagos was all gentle and sunny, the Western Coast was suddenly super windy and massive waves were pummelling the coast. 



I think might be where we had lunch!
Big time dangerous wind warnings today. And off and on rainy. Multi hour hike… beat. 
More tomorrow, then Evora and Nazaré and more. Big oval drive until back to Lisbon. Then hop a plane to Madrid for a month.

For those who’ve been noticing my blah blah about recent trips, here’s what I’m doing.
By flying from Vancouver instead of SFO, the cost of a round-the-world business class series of flights (We’re doing 15), taking less than a year, per person, was $10K. Total.
It takes some planning and compromise, but not much. https://roundtheworld.staralli...

They've been trying to open this line since the mid 80's when Southern Pacific quit.
It's always the same thing...
Investors dump money into it. Money gets spent on repairs. More damage happens because of landslides/ decline. Somebody runs off with the rest of the money.
The last endeavor was Mexico. Since this line runs through a small section in Tecate, Mexico. That government wanted to run freight though this Carizzo Gorge to access the main line in Yuma, Arizona. For 2 years they had to pay San Diego Metro $250,000 a year for a lease plus maintain the line. Mexico bailed last year.
So it sits vacant once again.
The railroad museum in Campo, California, which sits on this line, really wants to open an excursion train. But their funds are meager.






looks very cool. got that spooky end-of-civilization look to it.
