|Our travel plan was to visit Durango and Silverton in |
Colorado. It was about a 51 mile drive to Durango on
a mountain road. We didn't stay in Durango because
of the high hotel rates.
|Entering the town, we were welcome by the old time |
architectures and streets. I was getting excited and
couldn't wait for visiting the town.
|My husband asked me to take this photo. I asked him |
"what does it mean?" Over the past years, I have
learned a lot of things from him.
|My husband's philosophy is to pick someone's brain |
when we travel to some unfamiliar places. He was
asking questions about the train. That was the way
we learned things during our travels
|It was fun to see the little kid interacting with the train |
and the passengers. He was a little enthusiastic railroad
fan. It was a great environment to cultivate a small
child's passion for railroading.
|The train was gone and left the heavy emission for |
me to remember its beauty.

We started from the train station and would take a
walk around this historic city.
|We visited the city on a Saturday morning. It was |
really lay-back and a relaxing morning. If my tummy
was not full, I would like to sit down and have a cup
of coffee to enjoy my morning there.

|Our curiosity for the city real estate prices.|
|This was a bicycle friendly city. It offered many |
bicycle lock stands for bicyclists to secure their
|An adult community educational event was going on |
|We were lucky to walk around a local farmer |
market. It was a great way to learn the local cultures.
|The little girl was not afraid to follow the performers' |
dance and was enjoying herself in the public when
people were watching them. What a brave girl!
|Roasting Jalapeno or Chili(?): This was another first time |
experience to me. It smelled so good. Looked at these
kids expression. It says all.
|I thought all women liked this idea |
when it was time to go shopping.
|My husband learned the railroad museum was free |
to the public. So we didn't want to give up the chance
to visit the museum.
