In terms of topography, this area is analogous to the Independence narrows. We find it an interesting shot since, without a drone we are surprised to see the perspective. There are cliffs in the rugged terrain where the train traverses, and it is hard to fathom where the photographer could have stood to take this image! The area is above, and between where Reudi is now located and Haggerman Pass.
