Last night after another fun filled day in Durango we went for a drive on a couple of lightly used roads with my in-laws looking for wildlife.
I have never seen a bear in the wild and one is known to be in the area, so we went looking. We didn’t see a bear, but what we found was fun.
We saw a small group of wild turkeys, a group of about 8 elk and three of them were calves, Canadian geese, a skunk, and a mule deer doe. However, for me the best parts were when it was my children spotting the animals. My daughter saw a group of turkeys, a bunch of them born this spring. And my son the deer.
Today we embark on a journey non of us have taken. We will take the narrow gushed train to Silverton, an old mining town, a place we have only traveled by car.
after a trip to Mesa Verde, more when I have a ton of time, we are wrapping up our trip and headed back to the desert.
