The continuing adventures of a fulltime RVer.
Love this...this has been on my bucket list since a Travel Channel program more than 10 years ago.
Wis we would have done this, but it was just so expensive. Looks like a great ride.
My daughter met us out west one year and she and my husband took the train. I didn't because I hate heights, and we had dogs. A nice thing to know for people headed that was is that Alpen Rose Campground had a dog sitting service for those who wanted to go. Very nice people.
Just went over to their website and that ride is too rich for my budget. So I'm sure glad you took such great pictures and I got to enjoy the ride with you.
Isn't it great. We took the train from Silverton to Durango and it was fabulous. Couple places were a little hair raising though!!!Loved Silverton, what a great little town.
Sea sick? Naw, that would be "train sick". Or would that be the feeling you get after paying for the tickets?I'll have to start saving my pennies now, that looks too good to miss!
We spent the night one night along the Las Animas River on a backpacking trip out of Silverton. The train whistled us in the morning. A geologist working on his PHD stopped by our campsite and told us the water we were using for our coffee was likely radioactive (mine tailings).I have glowed in the dark ever since. Love Silverton, beautiful town. Rob Rupp
How fun. I especially like the picture with the train above the river. I hope not everybody leaned that way at the same time.
that water is beautiful, and the rocks too...the train ride had to be Great fun!!
Glad you took the train. That car with windows on the top looks great. Another good ride (and you dad would love it) is the Cumbres and Toltec out of Chama,NM, and Antonito, CO.
I love the video showing the rock and rolling. Brings back memories and it was only last week.
These are great pics. Thanks for sharing! It reminds me of the Chama train (NM).
I love these narrow gauge train rides ... almost always there's great scenery. Reminds me of the White Pass train we did out of Skagway in Alaska.
Great trip and loved your pictures.
It ha been a long time since I have left any comments on your blog, but Michelle and I continue to enjoy it.I do not know if you are aware, but the man who did the song "Convoy" in the seventies, CW McCall (who actually was a front man for Chip Davis, the brains of the thing...and the man behind the famous group "Manheim Steamroller")did a song about the train you rode on.Just goofy trivia!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U2VbX-DbLrY
I love comments!
