Hey how come those Anasazi Indians built there cliff dwellings so close to the highway?

You know they built them close to the highway so they could set up souvenir stands!

Another great side trip, especially for fans of choo-choos, is the Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad and Museum. The trip to Silverton is pretty cool but I recommend taking the train there and the bus home as the return trip made me sleepy.
Woodsman is right, the train is awesome! We have a friend that works there restoring the engines. Durango has some great eats and stuff downtown too. Almost out of town to the north is Serious Texas Barbecue, oh yeah, there is another one by the mall. They have some great food and I love there pulled pork chipolte sandwich! I'm getting hungry just thinking about it! MT

Do you know if it's on the 160 east/west or on 550 going north ?

If it's 550, you can just cut through town taking Florida Road or College Drive north and come back to 550 on 32nd Street bypassing the "strip".

I'll get you the address for both of them. I'll post them tonight. I forgot one thing though. The pulled pork sandwich has a cherry chipolte sauce. It may sound weird but it's awesome!!!

When we drove up to Silverton last week where 550 runs in to 160 heading north from Farmington the are widening that inersection. The wait wasn't too bad. MT

Okay I am joking of course, but when I lived in Durango I would get that question from time to time. That and "Hey at what altitude do the Deer change into Elk".

So at what altitude do the Deer change into Elk?????



You can outrun a Crown Vic, but you can't outrun a MOTOROLA.

Re: Great Summit side trip - Mesa Verde

Ok, here's the word on Serious Texas BBQ. Just visit their web site.
Serious Texas BBQ for all the info you need. Address, phone, maps, & menus!!! The south Durango location is on the frontage road in front of the mall and next to the Harley shop. This is the largest location and a must if you're pulling a trailer because they have a larger parking lot. The northern locations has a small parking lot but still great food! Hope that helps! MT
