    I am planning on a trip from Dallas (TX) to Four Corners, Utah and Durango during the 3 day Easter break. Is this a good time to go there. Will the train ride there be fun at this time of the year. Should I be considering some other places near Dallas that would be fun.

    Default Four Corners

    By train ride, I presume you mean the Durango & Silverton Narrow Guage Railway. Spring time in the Rockies can be anywhere from balmy and beautiful to Arctic cold & snowy. No problem either way except for the length of the trip. The train has both open and closed, heated cars. That early in the year, they are probably not running all the way to Silverton. Because of snow pack and the difficuty of maintaining roadbed through the winter, they only run about halfway from Durango and then turn around at a wye and return. It's still a neat ride. In that area, don't miss the four corners monument, just to say you've been there (you can do it in an hour or less) and the Mesa Verde National Monument. They are both a short, easy drive (unless there's a blizzard) from Durango. Have a great time. It's one of my favorite areas of the country.

    I did not remember these web addresses when I posted my previous reply. They say, as we get older memory is the second thing to go and I can't remember what the first one was. Anyway, you might want to check out www.Durango.com, www.DurangoTrain.com, and SouthwestDirectory.com.

    Thanks for that Don. That's great information.

    Another quick question for you. We are planning on driving to Durango on Thursday evening and driving back on Sunday night. Therefore we'll have 3 full days there (Friday to Sunday). Looks like we'll have plenty of time even after doing the the train ride, Mesa Verde Monument and Four Corners. Could you suggest something else that we could do as well while we are there.

    Thanks

    Default Four Corners

    The Four Corners really wasn't that great when I was there last March. The weather was beautiful, but the monument itself left a lot to be desired. We had to pay a couple bucks per person to drive up the driveway and look at a big metal plauque in the ground surrounded by run-down shop/sheds selling overpriced junk.

    I'd recommend looking on from the road. But that's just me, and I might be crazy. : )
