As we leave Rock Tunnel, look outside the left side of the train to see the bottom of the gorge 600 feet below us.

Just beyond the gorge on your left is the Garfield Monument which was erected by the Association of General Passenger and Ticket Agents to honor President James A. Garfield, who was shot in a train station in Washington, D.C. on July 2, 1881 and died September 19, 1881.
