After passing Crow's Nest, the Railway winds its way along the Valley of Michael Creek. One of the prettiest views is that obtained from the rear of a train after having passed through the 2,000-foot tunnel, which has partially taken the place of the famous Loop, for many years one of the wonders of this region. As the train passes out into the sunlight, far below can be seen the silvery thread of the Michael twisting and winding on its way to join the Elk River. Now, as the train swings off to the West again, huge, rugged, mountains appear, jagged and naked, their frowning sides and lofty peaks scarred and seamed, impenetrable they are, but easily circled.
