We left Golden this morning heading over 300 miles southwest to Durango. Great weather, beautiful mountain views, and many miles of isolated roadway and small towns. Sean watched videos and Drew had the pleasure of working on his Algebra math packet before school starts. Fun times on a 6 hour journey! The balcony of our hotel overlooks the Animas River - very peaceful at this time of year. Excited to say that we will be here for 3 days to enjoy the four corners area of Colorado. We are just a walk away from the Durango train station so you know we had to walk over to see what was going on. Made it just in time to see the last steam train arrive from Silverton and watch a diesel switcher move some cars around. Stopped in at the Steamtown Brewery for dinner so Dean could have some local beer and then walked down Main Street. And of course the boys had already scoped out the pool so they've ended the day with another great swim.
