Positive Energy Adventure – Colorado/New Mexico 8/2011 – Day 2

We got out of bed about 6am…had a leisurely cup of coffee and breakfast…then drove a few miles towards Silverton, Colorado to the Molas Trail, which is part of the Colorado Trail.  It was recommended by the couples we met at our Resort.  We hiked part of the 8 mile round trip trail that descends to the Durango Silverton Narrow Gauge Train.

After hiking, we drove the 20 something miles (1 hour drive time) to Silverton on the million dollar, mountain road.  Kathy did the driving…because for some reason (probably a combination of factors…caffeine and altitude) I was very jumpy and nervous.  The town of Silverton is cute…

We had lunch at the Brown Bear Cafe, which was recommended by a local.  It was tasty!

We drove back towards Durango and stopped at the other Molas trail…across the highway from the first one…and hiked for another 1 1/2 hrs.  There were a lot of wild flowers…It was a beautiful day and hike!

Feeling invigorated and filled with the love of nature, we drove back to our VRBO and made a fresh grilled fish and vegetable ke-bob dinner.  Life is good!

  1. Lovely pictures and account of your trip, made me miss these places. Hubby and I went camping there some years ago and really had a great time. We started from Colorado (Denver then went up to the Rockies) then down to Utah, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico then back again to Colorado. I’d love to go back again and camp as before.
