Durango is in the southwestern part of Colorado. It is marketed as “One Destination, Many Vacations.” It is perhaps most famous for the historic narrow gauge railroad that connects Durango with Silverton. It is the largest town in southwest Colorado with a population of about 16,000. The people in Durango are very friendly and down to earth. The surrounding landscape of Durango is diverse, spanning from red sandstone bluffs of the Animas River Valley to jagged peaks of the San Juan Mountains, a few of which rise to elevations over 14,000 feet. Durango is situated at 6,512 feet above sea level. Durango’s climate is actually quite moderate, with typical summer daytime highs in the 70s/80s, and nighttime lows in the 50s.
