It has been a full day.
We take the motorcycle to town. We are signed up for the Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad Trip.
We board a bus at 10:00. It is an hour and a half ride to Silverton. This includes going over two passes. The scenery is spectacular!
We have two and a half hours in Silverton. This gives us plenty of time for lunch.
After lunch we walk the mining town. John finds the Silverton Harley Davidson Shop. It advertises itself as the highest HD shop in the country.
I buy a rock from a young girl sitting by the train tracks. The rock is from the Silverton Mine. My rock contains some silver and some fool’s gold. I ask the price. It is “Pick a Price.” I bet she is getting rich!
We board the train for a three and a half hour ride back to Durango. This is a long train ride! At first we follow the river. We eventually climb a pass. We stop to pick up some hikers. We stop to pick up some rafters. For the entire trip, we rock back and forth.
This is a must do train ride. Although it is a long day, it is a great day!
