Travel Tips for Durango


by cloudhopper

Please, please, PLEASE don't jaywalk! It is dangerous and inconsiderate to the drivers on Main Ave! The street is crowded enough as it is without having to dodge jaywalkers every 1/4 block! So please, don't jaywalk, even if you see someone else do it!

I am a delivery driver for a restaurant on Main Ave, so I am acutely aware of this problem!

Mesa Verde- Indian ruins

by ylisa

Didn't go there this time but still worth it . Go early so you can get your tickets for the tours at the Far View Vistor Center ( Cliff Palace and Balcony house) . . Get's sold out quickly in the summer time . The tours are worth it!!!!! Need a half to a full day . Some will need more!!!

"Durango, the mountain resort"

Under construction...

Durango, the small city in the southwest of Colorado with its famous Strater Hotel and the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad along the Animas River. The picture shows Durango in the 1890's.

"Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge"

It's a "must" to do this trip. Make reservation at least one day ahead (may be earlier in high season).
The views along the Animas River and through the canyon are incredibly beautiful.

Durango and Silverton Railroad Excursion Scenery

by Easty

"The San Juan Mountain Scenery"

The best way, in my opinion, to see the scenic San Juan Mountains is to take the Durango and Silverton Railroad. On this trip, we saw some of the highest and most rugged peaks of the Colorado Rockies. On this train trip, I took well over 150 pictures. That should explain how special this is. In this first picture, here is a picture of one of the higher peaks with the Animas River in front of it.

"One of the first Views of the Mountains"

This is one of the first views of the San Juan Mountains when going from Durango to Silverton. It was just a preview of what was to come.


There were plenty of waterfalls along the journey. This particular waterfall is just right outside Silverton and is probably the most spectacular one.

"Animas Gorge"

The Animas Gorge was about 1 1/2 hour into the excursion from Durango. The train passes through a narrow gorge through the Animas River. The drop off here was well over 500 feet. Here is a whirlpool I found on the Animas River in the gorge.

"Whitewater Country"

The Animas River is definitely whitewater country. One of the fastest moving rivers I've seen.

"How would you like this view?"

Here is a great view of the San Juan Mountains from the window of my train seat.

"Another Mountain View for Good Measure"

These mountains are absolutely spectacular.

"Majestic Peaks"

Here is a fitting end to this page of the travelogue.
