Durango Colorado is green and beautiful this spring. We had an average snowfall this past winter and have had several spring showers already. Fortunately, we are lucky to have this great weather and our thoughts are with those who do not.
Mesa Verde National Park also looks great as everything is green and it looks like they have had plenty of moisture as well. The Durango and Silverton Train just celebrated the 40th anniversery of the Iron Horse Classic which is when bicycles race the Train to Silverton. They do this every Memorial Day weekend and there is a big festival to celebrate – what a blast it is!
Durango Silver Company which is just west of Durango on the Hwy towards Mesa Verde National Park is all spruced up for the summer tourist season and it is beautiful here. We have massive gardens of different types of perenials as well as annuals amunst evergreens, aspens and other beautiful greenery.
