By Mashi Salomon, Local Travel Consultant The day started off with the utmost excitement. Today would be the day that I would get to ride on the famous Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad, as well as fly through the trees on the world’s longest and safest zipline course of its kind! I met Carrie, my co-worker, at Starbucks, and we both giggled with excitement at the thought of the impending day of adventure ahead of us. We crossed the street towards the train station, and immediately found Soaring Tree Top’s first-class train car that we would be riding. We…

We love the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad. It’s not that we think this makes us unique, or even that we love it more than most, but we just couldn’t keep it in any longer. So, again, we love that train.

Durango is in the press again, honored as one of the best outdoor adventure hubs in the world!  This time, Durango took 2nd place as the runner up to Lake Wanaka, New Zealand in the April 2012 edition of Outside Magazine.  We have to say, there is no shame in being 2nd to a beautiful and diverse place like New Zealand, but we are guessing that Durango just might be a bit more accessible to the majority of us in the U.S. this year!  Sure, we would all love to enjoy the scenic beauty and outdoor wonder that New Zealand has…
