So the Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad has run its last trip to Silverton for the season and the slopes have not opened yet. This doesn’t mean you have to stay home and wait for something fun to come your way. Why not visit Durango now? With the summer crowds gone it is a great time for a getaway! Stop by for a few days and visit Mesa Verde National park. This is a perfect time of year to explore the ruins, and you will have plenty of time to sit a spell and just enjoy the quietness of the area or the wildlife passing by.
You could also take a short 20 minute drive over to Ignacio, Co. to visit our new Southern Ute Heritage Center. Take a self-guided tour through the permanent gallery to explore the history and culture of the Southern Ute through your own eyes. Once your tour is over walk on over to Sky Ute Casino to try your luck at the slots, a couple of games of bowling, or some mean games of bingo. Sky Ute Casino also has great restaurants to meet any tastes. Before you leave our beautiful area why not take an hour or two to soak at Trimble Hot Springs. Trimble’s natural hot springs offers a variety of massage treatments, as well as, soaking in the relaxing mineral waters.
