We have made our reservations to lease a house in Durango (downtown) for the month of August '12. Two seniors with family visiting. We have not been in this area before so I have no sense of the bigger area ie within a daytrip/return or one overnight from Durango. We will do Telluride, Mesa Verde, Silverton/Ouray and Pagosa Springs
Is there somewhere a little further away that should be on our list?
No hiking--just a nice drive, some sightseeing and a good lunch will do fine!
All suggestions for a good stay are very welcome
