New Mexico trip – Durango–Silverton Railroad

Took the 9:00 train from Durango to Silverton. Started out as a beautiful day but about two hours into the trip we got rain and then snow, lots of snow. We were in an outside, open-to-the-air car and it was really cold. Cruising along at 20 mph in the snow at over 8,000 feet was quite the bracing experience. Silverton is an old mining town with just one paved road. We headed immediately for the local sporting goods store to purchase additional layers of clothes and gloves for the return trip. Cold and snow aside, the scenery was fabulous.
