Frederic, It's great to see the additions to this project. It's feeling very expansive and looking very neat.

Thanks for the nice comments, my friends.
A view on the modelling clay peaks that mark the entry of the high mountain area. Their shape was more or less inspired from the Phantom curves on the Cumbres and Toltec RR. Some have received some paint, other are still too "undry"...

The Navajos native inhabitants of the country used to call the left higher peak "Amá Diniih" since they thought it evoked a suffering mother. While the monk who first explored the area could have called it Mater Dolorosa, or maybe Rosama, he didn't understand quite well what his guide told him and called the peak "Almandinis". Eventually, his followers simplified the name in "Landis Peak".

Thanks Frank.

Here are a few pics of the painted peaks.

Using the selfie capabilities of the smartphone to see what you can't see and guess where to add more paint...



The mountain side with a few unglued evergreens to have an idea of the future look.





And a global view of the current surroundings of the Alexandria Mining company facilities.

Ah, so there is something more to them than random rock formations! In New Hampshire they used to have "The old Man of the Mountain" until it collapsed in 2003

Nice work, Frederic

It's funny that this old man of the mountain was located in a town called Franconia (and besides, that the Old Man River's source is the true Lake Itasca, as mentionned earlier in this topic).

Besides all the trestles and rock formations your backdrop painting is quite nice too.

Sorry for the late answer, Jerry.
Just back from a nearly 2000 miles long car trip to Berlin to take back my daughter who was there for a 6 weeks long school exchange. But to be honest, I had seen your message before leaving to Germany...
Hope you've not only found bears to help you go through the mountains. I'm afraid my builders have been hired for some odd math job once again...
I'll try to avoid being absent as long as the previous time, though.
