This photo was taken in January 2003 by the Resident Engineer, Stan Hyatt. A heavy snow had fallen the evening before, with about 8" at Buckner Gap. The wind was blowing very hard, around 40mph, and as Stan passed through Buckner Gap the sun came out and illuminated this spectacular view. This image is of the NB side of a large cut just south of Buckner Gap; the rock slope is about 120' high. Travel conditions will definitely be challenging up here in the winter.
