Tuesday, September 1st, 2015 : Durango, Silverton, ATV, steam train

 

roadmap us mark 5 5 us We cross beautiful San Juan Mountains in bus, on ATV and, lastly, steam train. We then have a short drive between Durango and Mesa Verde, with a gorgeous arrival in this beautiful park.
attractions us mark 4 5 us The ATV ride is quite physical but really great. We visit a ghost village and an abandoned mine.
weather us mark 4 5 us A few thin clouds can't erase a really bright weather perception.
hotel us mark 3 5 us Far View Lodge has for it an outstanding location in Mesa Verde National Park. Apart of this, it is rather basic relative to its price. The restaurant serves great food, but at really steep prices.

A dense and varied day, with sport, adventure, nature, and eventually some rest during the train ride back from Silverton.
  favorite us Ben's friendliness, who went out of his way to make Marie's excursion, which was beginning quite badly on a very uncomfortable ATV, a pleasure. Kudos to you, Ben !
