Lucky Coal
Title:  Lucky Coal
Description:  I was heading to my friends house in Monument when I got stopped at crossing. I was right at the gates when I noticed the lights started to flash, and before the gates came down, three or four cars easily could have made it, but I slammed on my brakes and made a few people mad. Kinda lucky though, I had my camera in the seat next to me so I got a couple shots of it.
