Groups can dive into the days of the Old West by visiting the Stater Hotel or take in a sightseeing train ride with the Durango & Siverton Narrow Gauge Railroad.  The train winds through canyons in the remote wilderness of the San Juan National Forest as passengers learn about the miners, cowboys and settlers that rode the same rails over a century ago. @ntanow @gotravelsites @visitdurango
