Nothing better than riding on the maiden voyage of the narrow gauge train out of Durango, hanging on tracks carved into a mountain over the Animas River, heading for a gunfight in Silverton, Colorado.

Motorcycle Camping – Liz Travels – Chapter 5Without knowing it at the time, our trip was about to become beautiful experiences, one after another.There were no tears shed when we left the Texas panhandle and entered New Mexico. The landscapewas becoming like none I had ever seen before. You could see as far as fifty miles because much of what we were driving was high desert country. The mountains could be many miles away, but therewas nothing but flat desert until you reached their foothills. We were on our way to Four Corners,where you could stand in four states at one time. New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado and Utah.At Four Corners. There is noway I recall what directionLiz and I are facing, but untilthen, we had never seen sucha vista. We were looking atwhat was the beginning of  beautiful, beautiful countrylike we never knew existed.From Four Corners we headed into Colorado. We had chosen several places that we knew we wantedto see, and we left some extra, unplanned-to-the-letter time for anything we were going to do that wedidn't know about yet. Our first stay of more than one night was Mesa Verde which was very close tothe Four Corners area. We had read about the cliff dwellings, and we knew there was a National Park where we could set up a comfortable campsite with more than the basic amenities.
 
A very familiar monumentat the entrance to MesaVerde National Park. It wasa very impressive sight for ayoung family from themidwest.Well, I thought we would havemany more amenities, but thecampsite was rather sparse. Atleast it was fairly level. It'smorning, and chilly. Liz iswrapped in her wool blanket tokeep warm.

th
century.Liz and I are looking at the “Cliff Palace”which is thought to be the largest cliff dwelling in North America. Mesa Verdehad an excellent museum with muchinformation and many artifacts, from toolsto pottery to even some mummifiedremains.
