Lizard Head has changed landscape of SW Colorado

Lizard Head has changed landscape of SW Colorado

The Rio Grande Southern Railroad, a narrow gauge railroad, began operations in 1891, when the railhead was established in Dolores. The Galloping Goose is shown on its way with Lizard Head in the background. The side of the trains indicates “Ophir Loop, Lizard Head, Scenic Line, Thompson Park, and Pasture Lands.”
Lizard Head is shown in this historical photo in its changed form after the rock fall that forever altered this landmark. The Montezuma County Historical Society seeks any photos that may be out there of Lizard Head before this event in December of 1911.
