Another Hole in the Continental Divide

The Moffat Tunnel  creates another hole of sorts in the Continental Divide. The 6.2 mile long railroad tunnel that we went through earlier today also carries water from the western side of the Rockies to Denver
The map below shows the tunnel (the straight dashed line) juxtaposed with the twisty overland route. Source: Moffat Road Railroad Museum
