Trip to the South Western US
May - June 2005
The Ouray-Silverton-Durango road in Colorado is HIGH, and the views from it are quite beautiful. From the 95+ degrees of Las Vegas and Zion (later this year near 120 degrees!), we "flew" our Chevrolet more than two miles above sea level in the freezing rain. Timing prevented us from taking the scenic Silverton-Durango railroad, but we saw it arrive in Silverton, after which the two of us got caught in different little craft shops (with the wonderful smell of the wood stoves used for heat) during a downpour (it had been sunny only a few minutes earlier…). The photo of the town from above is of Silverton, formerly a mining town.
