We are passing through the mountains of rocks along a river; the river is noisy and its noise gives life to the lifeless scenery. We woke up at Colorado the 4th stste we crossed over. At 10/30 we climb up a certain height, and this is why snow is seen along the way. There were many pinea. The snow on the mountain top is white and shiny. We passed through tunnels made of wood, to protect the road against snow. Icicles in these tunnels are very bright which gives majestic effect. - The Porter of the Pullman Car, an American, is a sort of thief.- Colorado has more trees than the three states we passed over. There are many horses.
