Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad, Colorado

On the high line, 400 feet above the Animas River in Colorado runs the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad. Once upon a time I rode the RR with someone I bought a ring for in the old mining town of Silverton that fit perfectly, and by the time we returned down from the high altitude to Durango, the ring fell loose. She's still with me.

At 19, my friend John and hitched to California and hopped freights back to Texas. One leg of the journey took us through Colorado's Royal Gorge as this photo reminds me. High adventure for a couple of would-be Dharma Bums on our way back to college.

watch for the bulls,

Hi Mike,

Sweet sounding to the ears — two Dharma Bums on their way back to college. I believe they call that — having your cake and eating it, too!

Sun's up today, rain tomorrow
all's well, Bob
