Day 3

So one of the best ways to see the scenery and get to experience a train ride the way people did during the 1800's is to take the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railway.

Leaving the station

This is the original train that has been in operation for 128 years!

The train tracks run along the Animas River.  This bridge is a stop along the way where hikers get off to enter the wilderness.

An old entrance to a silver mine

When you arrive in Silverton you have a couple hours to visit shops, have some lunch and enjoy the view.
