A crew of eight whitewater rafters missed setting a brand new pace report for rowing down the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon this week when their raft was punctured within the try. Slightly than organize for a shuttle from Durango again to our vehicle in Silverton, we determined to deal with ourselves to a scenic practice journey on the Durango-Silverton Slender Gauge Railroad, which has been in continuous operation for 127 years.
We do plan to spend the evening in Durango before taking the prepare again to Silverton, but we do not wish to spend huge bucks on a hotel, so we’re taking a look at some inexpensive options.
Utterly justified or not, Ralph Henry Cameron fills that position in Grand Canyon pioneer historical past.
As a third generation Arizonian, he was raised hiking the Grand Canyon and began boating in 1992.
