Durango Colorado is a mountain town in the southwest corner of the state. Like many western towns it was built around the railroad (the historic Durango-Silverton railroad still runs four trips a day...we have tickets to make the trip tomorrow). The importance of the train to this community suggests that the iconic photo I share today should be of the train.
I, however, have found that the deer have provided the most unique experience in Durango. On Tuesday we went to look at a house that was for sale, and a deer was in the front garden nibbling flowers. Yesterday we were driving down the street a couple of blocks from my sister's place and a buck with a huge rack was casually walking down the sidewalk. I'm pretty sure he looked both ways before crossing the street too!
So here's to the Durango Deer. Happy Friday!
