Trip Log – Colorful Colorado

SL Moms Cafe     SL Castle ValleySL Colorado Sign

We left Salina Utah this morning but not before we went back and got a picture of Mom’s Cafe and downtown Salina (all 12 buildings). 🙂  We then hopped onto I70 for our trip across southern Utah.  This part of the trip had absolutely amazing scenery! It was hard to pick just one picture for this post but I managed to pick one from Castle Valley. I think we stopped at every “Vista site” on the highway and there were several of them.

We hit the Colorado line around noon and of course got our sign picture.  I had never heard them call Colorado colorful before but it is that.  We soon got off I70 for our 100 mile trek to Durango where we will go on an all day train ride through some of the most beautiful parts of the Rockies.  We stopped short of Durango and are staying the night  in Montrose. We will go the rest of the way tomorrow.  Just to be safe I booked our hotel and train ride on-line just a few minutes ago. It is a good thing I did as about 80% of the hotels are already books up and the train ride just had a few seats left for any of the days we will be there.   We will stay three days in Durango to do the train, see the sites, and go to Mesa Verde National Park.
