D&RGW VO-660 72 by Chuck Zeiler
Via Flickr:
Chicago Rock Island & Pacific Railroad Business Car 101, ‘Lake Michigan’ at Colorado Springs, Colorado on August 20, 1964, Ektachrome by Chuck Zeiler. Business car 101 was built by Pullman as coach 352 during 1950. Around 1953 it appears to have been converted to business car 101, 'Lake Michigan’ by the Rock Island. It is seen here on the Colorado Springs section of the Rocky Mountain Rocket. On the left is D&RGW VO-660 72 (built 8/41, c/n 64186) with a 'mixed train’. I arrived (with my parents) on the Colorado Springs connection of CB&Q’s Denver Zephyr (DZ), forwarded from Denver to Colorado Springs on the rear of Rio Grande’s Train No. 1, The Royal Gorge. Upon arrival at Colorado Springs, the DZ cars were cut off the Royal Gorge, and the local D&RGW switcher picked them up. The 72 will take the DZ cars and the freight cars it collected during its morning switching and drag them over to the other side of town, where the DZ cars will be serviced, cleaned, and be held for Train No. 2, The Royal Gorge, for return to Denver, where they will be added to the DZ for return to Chicago.

Derek is busy drying dishes when the slam of the loft’s sliding door catches him off guard. Only his preternatural reflexes save Stiles’s prized Batman mug from an untimely demise. He sets the mug safely on the counter and puts the kettle on before turning around and holding his arms out, just in time for Stiles to crash into his chest and nuzzle in as though he could burrow down and hide beneath Derek’s ribcage.

The Frilled shark has been called everything from a “sea serpent” to a real-life “Loch Ness Monster” over the years. A more accurate nickname is “the living fossil,” since this shark belongs to a primitive species that has changed very little over millions of years. Because the frilled shark bears such a striking resemblance to an eel, ichthyologists once assumed it navigated the water by wriggling. Now it’s known that this species possesses an oil and hydrocarbon-packed liver that enable it to float and hover at depths between 160 and 660 feet.

Tiger sharks are known as the “garbage guts” of the sea, and for good reason. As opportunistic feeders, Tiger sharks will eat just about anything. Odd items found in a tiger shark’s stomach include a chicken coop, a bag of money, boat cushions, boots, explosives, hyenas, deer antlers, a bag of potatoes… the list seems endless. As part of a more regular diet, Tiger sharks enjoy turtles, bony fish, crabs, birds and rays. Tiger sharks undergo a remarkably long, 4,660 mile round-trip migration every year. In Hawaiian culture, the Tiger shark is not only considered sacred, but legend has it that its eyeballs have special powers; it’s said that even the mother of the famous King Kamehameha ate Tiger shark eyes during her pregnancy so that her son would have qualities of leadership and bravery.
