The Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad is a historic train that runs from Durango, Colo., to Cascade Station, about halfway to Silverton, Colo., at this time of year. It is perhaps the most scenic train ride in America.
It is also one of the scariest train rides. The dropoffs to the Animas River, below, are enough to give a test pilot vertigo.
But the scenery! Words can’t even begin to describe it.
