We took the bus up to Durango and rode the train back. We did this to return earlier to get our dog out of daycare, but it was a great decision. The ride from Silverton to Durango is almost all downhill, so less coal smoke to breathe in. We were in the glass-topped Knight Rider car. Another great choice, since it gave a much more open feel. The scenery was magnificent -- and can really only be seen from the train, since it follows the Animas River most of the way -- and the roads go a different way.
