BNSF 4357 at Pica, Arizona 2-25-2006.

BNSF C44-9W 4357 and its all GE power are heading upgrade at Pica, AZ (west of Seligman) on February 25, 2006. Note the steam era Santa Fe towers in the background. Although the grade from the Arizona divide near Flagstaff to Needles, CA drops over 6000 feet, down to the Colorado river at the California - Arizona border, this segment is definitely uphill and the units have to work for a change.
Canon EOS 5DMKII - 1/1000 sec - f/10 - ISO 400 - EF100-400mmL IS f/4.5-5.6 lens @150mm.
