America could learn a lot from the message on this tank. Unfortunately most people in the United States still feel there is no problem running our vehicles using foreign resources and polluting fossil fuels. I took this picture while riding Amtrak’s Southwest Chief. I’m thinking this building is located somewhere before Trinidad, Colorado. It looked like an old railroad building. That is what originally caught my interest. Only later did I see the warning message on the fuel tank.
A passenger on the train made a comment about this town that I originally thought was some sort of lame joke. But it seems Trinidad, Colorado has been labeled the “Sex Change Capital of the World”. Honestly this is the last place you would expect to have such a reputation. I guess I’m the only person who was completely unaware of this history. The Trinidad doctor who performed these surgeries was featured in an episode of South Park.
