Re: Denver noe Mesa Verde


One of my favorite places. If you go up to the fire tower and look north from the parking lot, you can see ship rock cruising the desert below. Quite a sight.

I agree with Cathy, these are great locations! Some of these places, you
wouldn't want to wander off on your own. I mean, really, a vertical wall
may be a wonder to behold, but to climb it, wasn't for me without the nicely
provided tour ladder. Besides, when we were there, many areas were
restricted to protect the wildlife, the ecology and the historical nature of
the dwellings. We took the Mesa Verde/Cliff Dwelling tour, climbing the
ladders and ducking through small passageways with toddlers on our backs!
It was fabulous!


Blessings,
Bonnie

I do indeed, you will be heading to the southwest corner of the state,
then north into the mountains to some of the old gold mining towns.
Durango is really near Mesa Verde - well worth a side trip to see the
Cliff Dweller locations.

From what I understand it hits the following towns:


Starts in Denver, to Alamosa- to Durango(day trip, but two nights
here) - to Ouray- to Leadville back to denver.

Hopefully someone knows where I am talking about :)

Donna, Not an old train, but the trip to Glenwood Springs via
Glenwood
Canyon is really great, especially from the vista dome cars. When I
went, I
traveled on the Denver&Rio Grande Western. If you go south of Denver,
there's several senic old time type, read steam powered, trains
operating,
most of them require a few weeks or months advance registration.

Concerning my Denver request- I have an opportunity to take a train
ride
in that area... 5 days, 5 towns, via a few different old trains thru
the
countryside by Denver....


Curious if anyone has ever done this? Not sure I really want to do
this
or not... anything a gardener would be interested in seeing in Aug?!?
