Day 18 - Durango, CO

[I apologize for the break in our updates . . . I guess I was just having too much fun to keep the blog up-to-date.  That's the trouble with vacations, I fear.  I'll be updating the rest of the trip now that we are home safe and sound and I have nothing fun to do! - The Editor (Liza)]

As you know, this trip is a working trip for Greg.  So, periodically, he has to work while I find ways to entertain the kids!  Today was one of those days.  We left him at camp, working hard, listening to the sound of the creek trickling past our campsite, feeling the cool mountain breeze blowing through the campsite and headed off to a local museum.  It is the Animas Museum.

The museum is located in an old schoolhouse -- very cool.  They have a large room set up as it would have been back when the school was in use.  Their other exhibits involved the history of Durango and the Native Americans from the area.  Gage’s favorite exhibit was about a gunfight between a Marshall and a Sheriff in Durango’s past.  When we were done, we went outside to look at the Joy Cabin.  It’s the oldest cabin in the Durango area and has been moved to the museums’ grounds.  It’s lovely -- and you can walk in and look at it.  It looks as if the inhabitants are going to come in and offer you coffee any second.
