|Strater Hotel, Durango|
Durango immediately reminded me of Flagstaff, Arizona. Gentrified downtown, mountains in the background, politically left-leaning. I don't know if it considers itself a college town, although Fort Lewis College adds about 4,000 to the city's population.
Animas River provides some exciting whitewater, and the visitor's center makes it easy to use. Also, RVs can find fresh water and a dump station there.*
*NOT in the river.
|What the what is going on out there?|
Durango was hosting a classic car show downtown. I found a bookstore.
We've been relaxing at the Vallecito Resort. I'm not a resort gal, although I have enjoyed the hot tub and the laundry room. Sites are too small, and neighbors are too close; we're already looking forward to New Mexico state parks again. Colorado is beautiful and knows it. New Mexico is a shy beauty who isn't so secure in her allure.
