On a recent trip to our daughter’s in Durango, Colorado we checked something off of our bucket list–taking a train ride in the Colorado Rockies on the Narrow Gauge Railroad, between Durango and Silverton. This restored steam train offers scenic, seasonal rides and ends at a museum displaying machinery. If you ever have a chance to go, I’d strongly suggest that you do so! It was awesome. Enjoy the photos.
We heat with wood and I loved the ornate pot belly stove in the train station.
There was snow in early May. This area could receive snow in June.
Beautiful mountain scenery along the way.
When I asked for the time, out came the cool pocket watch!
Snowcapped mountain views in the background.
Switchback on the ride back.
Awesome panaromic shot.

We have wanted to do this for over thirty years and had an awesome day!
