During your stay at Alpenglow, you’re likely going to want to do some sightseeing while social distancing. Thankfully Ouray and its surrounding area are practically bursting at the seams with places to explore, provided they are open of course.
We are going to start with the historic Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railway. If you’ve ever been curious to experience what it was like to ride on a classic coal-fired, steam-powered locomotive along the railroads that were once heavily relied on by miners, cowboys, and settlers during the old West days, it’s an experience not to be missed. During the ride, you can pass through some stunning, jaw-dropping canyons in the beautifully rugged wilderness of the San Juan National Forest.
In Mesa Verde National Park, a declared UN World Heritage Site recognized for its impressive cliff dwellings and 600 + years of fascinating mesa occupation, you will find even more history.
When it’s wintertime, it’s hard to go wrong when you take a trip to Telluride, featuring activities like skiing and snowboarding in the mountains. Lessons are provided to people regardless of age so you can take a trip down the side of the mountains and check out the incredible scenery.
