Gary and I took the kids to Durango, Colorado on vacation from July 8-12. We rode the Durango-Silverton train on July 9th from 8:00 a.m. til 5:00 p.m. It was a full day! The kids enjoyed it. Evan got a little bored towards the end and Kendall fell asleep for the last hour. Blake loved it. The scenery was spectacular. We saw some snow on the mountaintops and looked for bears but couldn't find any. The train takes you from Durango to Silverton and you stop in Silverton for an hour and half. We had lunch and walked around the town and found their city park. It rained on us and we had to run back to the train in the rain. The kids enjoyed that too. We stopped at an ice cream shop to get out of the rain. Gary remembers taking the train as a kid with his family on one of their family vacations. We rode on the open condola train and the weather was perfect. We had coats and pants in case it got cold but we never got rained on.
