Durango Tour Now 9/10/18 through 9/15/18 (Originally Scheduled for 6/21 through 6/26)


Here is a list of Durango activities for free time, compiled by Carol Tracy

Here is the draft of the September Durango tour. You will notice we avoid major events on weekends so whatever we do or wherever we go it will be less crowded.

Please review this itinerary and email me to let me know what you think of it; we're open to suggestions. The Hampton Inn said I should block book rooms no later than 7 days from now.

These dates are still within their "tourist season" so let's not expect any reductions in expenses other than the group pricing they extend us at the Hampton Inn.

DAY 1   Monday, Sept. 10

A 440 Mile drive to Durango.  Leave at 8:30 AM from Albertsons.  See attached Route Guide

Group dinner at the Palace   7:00

DAY 2   Tuesday, Sept 11

Free day.  A list of potential activities, attached, was sent to all club members in April. Great day for the train ride, Zip Line, etc

DAY 3  Wednesday, Sept 12

We will Drive the SAN JUAN LOOP  240 Miles  (Ouray, Telluride, Dolores, etc.)  We will leave the hotel parking lot at  8:30 AM. See Route Guide Attached.

No Dinner Plans, you’re on your own, have fun! Either Wed or Friday evening, some of us may order Pizza and adult beverages and sit on the patio at the Hampton.
we did this 2 years ago and everyone had a great time.

DAY 4  Thursday, Sept 13 

A “free day” but an optional drive is planned to Pagosa  Springs and Wolfe Creek Pass.  For those interested, we  will meet in the hotel parking lot and depart  at 9:00 AM.  We will take Hwy 550 south to Hwy 160 & then east to Pagosa Springs (60 miles).  After a brief comfort break, we will continue on Hwy 160 up Wolfe Creek Pass. (23 Miles).  On the way to the top, we will stop at Treasure Falls Scenic outlook.  After reaching the top of Wolfe Creek Pass we will head back to Pagosa Springs for lunch., there is nothing to do or see at the top. Arrangement have been made for our group to eat lunch at the  Riff Raff restaurant on the Rio.  356 E. Pagosa.   After lunch we will head back to Durango.

Dinner is pre -scheduled at the Strater Hotel.  Starts at 6:30 in Room ___

DAY 5, Friday, Sept 14

“Free Day. “ There will be a drive to Silverton and then back to Purgatory  for those folks  who are interested, we will be leaving the hotel parking lot 9:30. This will give us a chance to look around in Silverton and we'll probably head back to Purgatory for lunch. They have a great restaurant with either indoor or outdoor seating.

No dinner plans, you're on your own.
