The fourth crossing of the Animas River from Durango is established at Elk Park. Originally the crossing of the river was done via a steel and wooden truss bridges here. Weakened by the Spring flows of the Animas, the original crossing was abandoned in 1964.

The shot here is taken from "track level" of the old bridge between the wooden and steel sections.
