Today’s post is from our summer trip to Durango Colorado.  One of our adventures was to ride the narrow gauge railroad from Durango to Silverton.  I highly recommend this trip if you are ever in the area.  The views are amazing.

When riding the train you get your choice of several car options (and prices).  The open car which you can see in the back sounds great at first until you hit one of those notorious mountain storms and get soaked. We were thankful to be in 30 Coach which was closed in but had windows.

Until next time…

  1. Man, I totally want to come out and ride the rails. This sounds like a good time, minus the getting soaked in the open car bit. How long of a ride is it?

  2. I’m a sucker for trains and train image. Ironically I was channel surfing though the History Channel tonight and they were doing a short segment on this very line.

    Great image, the colors really pop.
